The Department of Landscape Architecture at Mississippi State University has pledged to "foster the will and ability to plan, design, build, and manage regenerative communities" through our mission statement. We believe that the professions of Landscape Architecture and Landscape Contracting should strive to connect art, culture, and the environment to provide society with places that people love and that are cognizant of a holistic, ecological model of design. Our students explore subjects such as the design process, storm water design, energy flow, native landscapes and plant materials, green infrastructure, sustainability, community planning, and regional planning.
Landscape architects at Mississippi State worked with Toyota Motor Manufacturing Mississippi to design a landscape plan for their new facility in north Mississippi. The plan responds to Toyota's corporate vision of a sustainable plant while taking advantage of the site's unique characteristics.
By competing in the national Campus RainWorks Challenge, an international student team at Mississippi State is learning to address the worldwide challenge of sustainably through stormwater management.
