The College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (CALA) at The University of Arizona is “developing a number of new and important programs that will build on CALA’s tradition of excellence including sustainable real estate development, responsible property investment, and the new field of Geodesign.
“Creation of a new Design Curriculum. CALA has become a national educational leader in the new field of Geodesign. Geodesign combines the rich geographic digital mapping and data base power of Geographic Information Systems with the three dimensional imaging and modeling capabilities of Building Information Modeling. Together, these tools will allow architects, landscape architects, and planners of the future to design in 3-D at the landscape scale while assessing multi-dimensional impacts and implications of design alternatives.”
