There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.

Description

In this design studio, students further develop the repertoire of landscape design techniques necessary for effective professional design practice as a landscape architect. These techniques include:

  • various methodologies of site and context analysis that reveal a given study area's physical geography and its soil, landform, climate, hydrosphere, ecosystems and urban systems, character and particularities (including mapping and cartography, geographic information systems (GIS), aerial photography interpretation, transects, analytical drawings and diagrams, documentary research, sketching and photography)
  • an appropriate design response to site conditions through the planning and strategic organisation of medium-scale landscape spaces to accommodate experiential, technical, programmatic, contextual and material objectives and constraints.

In this studio, designs move through conceptual stages to detailed design via sketch and final physical and/or computer-aided design (CAD) models, drawings and analytical diagrams, master plans, and detailed design drawings and perspectives.
