The Landscape Architecture | Regional & Community Planning Department’s long tradition of independent student projects in the final year of study continues. Now each student prepares a master’s report or thesis and since 2006 all are made available on the K-State Research Exchange, KREx, where you can search for work by author, major professor, key words and many other attributes. You’ll find a list of master’s theses and reports linked below by degree program. The titles lead you to pages where you can download the full document.
Below you will find a list of the 2013 class of MLA and MRCP theses and reports. Click on the underlined title to reach a page that will allow you to download and review the projects. The committee members for our students’ projects include faculty from four colleges in addition to our own and more than a dozen departments. We’re thrilled about the range of our interdisciplinary explorations!
One example of our students’ excellent work is Lauren Ewald’s, MLA ’13, master’s report focused on improving public spaces in the neighborhood of Vistas del Cerro Grande in Chihuahua, México. Her study was created in collaboration with 5th and 6th grade students from the neighborhood. Click on the image to view Lauren’s video and see the children she worked with and their neighborhood. Lauren was named the 2013 KSU 2013 Landscape Architecture Foundation Scholar. She went on to share her passion for design to improve lives at the Kounkuey Design Initiative in Los Angeles, California.
