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


The subject provides the introductory studio in the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (Honours) (C09079) studio sequence. It provides a framework for students:

- to understand fundamental themes and techniques, while exploring experimental approaches to landscape design inquiry, and

- to build knowledge of landscape and landform that informs spatial design.

Through site investigation, students learn to deploy various mediums, contexts, and scales in the conceptualisation and schematisation of landscape proposals.The studio uses both two- and three-dimensional, analogue and digital exercises, including reading, writing, sketching, modelling and mapping landscape at different physical scales. It combines direct observation on site, and desk top analyses such as photogrammetry and precedent studies. The intent is to build spatial literacy of landscape. Rigorous research and iterative design tactics enable students to translate analysis and observation into concepts, and then into schemes.
