2014 Dumbarton Oaks Symposium in Garden and Landscape Studies: "Sound and Scent in the Garden"

May 9-10, 2014
Dumbarton Oaks, Washington D.C.

The 2014 Dumbarton Oaks symposium in Garden and Landscape Studies (May 9-10, 2014) is on the theme of sensory perception. While we often approach gardens as things to be seen—thus engaging the rational, intellectual part of the human brain—Sound and Scent in the Garden explores the more elusive experiences of sound and smell. Important dimensions of garden design and performance, and often having a powerful effect on the human body, these senses are ephemeral and can be difficult to study. The papers in the symposium explore the ways that the historical experience of sound and scent can be recuperated, and explain the meaning of those senses for landscape design, past and present.

LARE Prep Webinars

30th. These webinars will help you get organized, study for, and conquer these tough exams.
Few people teaching LARE review courses have taken the new format exam, but Cheryl Corson has taken Sections 3 and 4, passing Section 3 (the first time), and Section 4 the second time. She treats her students with respect, and understanding of the challenge of adding test preparation to the responsbilities of adult life. Due to their length, and breadth of topics, each Section's materials are presented in three pre-recorded webinars, each followed by a live Q&A session.

Passing LARE Section 4
Section 4 tests diverse concepts such as stormwater management, construction methods, grading and drainage, specifications, construction administration, and much more. That’s a lot to study! By focusing on key concepts with the use of strategic study resources and organizing your time, you'll be efficient and well-equipped for this challenging test.

Passing LARE Section 3
Section 3 tests basic concepts that influence design decisions, and asks how to move a conceptual design forward.  With material seeming like common sense or even subjective, Section 3 can seem difficult to study for.  But teasing out core concepts and refreshing yourself on design strategies for project types you may not do every day is not only possible, it can be fun.
