dc.description.abstract Exploring issues of gender and sexuality in landscape architecture is lacking in theory and practice. The purpose of this research is to reconcile the role of landscape architecture with socio-political facets and its role in community design, with a focus on gender and sexuality. The intent is to examine and challenge ingrained design assumptions about how spaces are perceived, used and designed in landscape architecture. As issues regarding gender and sexuality increasingly become visible and demographics change, with it arises new opportunities as values and needs experience a dynamic shift. It is within this new paradigm that landscape architecture can share an influential and relevant role in shaping and designing spaces to create greater inclusion, through an examination and compilation of available data and gender-neutral and gender-sensitive frameworks, case studies, and a comparative analysis of existing design guidelines in landscape architecture. en_US
