Our Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional & Community Planning (LARCP) at K-State offers an unparalleled opportunity for students to work across the scales of design and planning from site design to regional planning. Integration of faculty research and creative activities into classes allows students to partner with faculty on projects exploring current topics in our disciplines. The power of our approach is demonstrated in the regional and national rankings we have received from Planetizen and DesignIntelligence.

Wicked planning and design problems lie at the intersection of different disciplines. Our interdisciplinary approach leads to inspired and thoughtful solutions for the future.

Our New Facilities

We moved into renovated and expanded facilities opened in 2017. The new Seaton/Regnier Complex, home to the College of Architecture, Planning & Design (APDesign), is a living laboratory for innovative planning and design. World-class design marries APDesign's historic limestone home with new space and technology, providing every student with their own workspace in multi-disciplinary studios and state-of-the-art fabrication facilities.
