  • Paving products comprise an important part of both the functionality and aesthetic of exterior spaces, including urban plazas, streetscapes, walkways, patios, and amenity spaces. This course provides an overview of architectural paving and segmental retaining walls (SRWs) as two primary applications of hardscaping products in these spaces. The course introduces architectural paving and its components, manufacturing, and products and then focuses on the benefits, construction, and available types of SRWs. Case study examples of both architectural paving and SRWs are provided to engage and inspire learners as to the applications, functionality, and aesthetic possibilities of hardscaping products.

  • Permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP) has the ability to create solid, strong surfaces for pedestrians and a range of vehicular uses; it can help maintain a site’s existing natural hydrologic function and reduce the overall impact of development. This course discusses the components of a PICP system and how they work together to manage stormwater in a variety of applications. Also addressed are hydrological and structural factors to consider when designing with PICP and how PICP contributes to sustainable building goals and projects.
