This subject provides an introduction to the physical properties and design applications of landform. The subject investigates topography through the study of landscape influences such as geology, geomorphology and hydrology; and explores topographic archetypes, such as slopes, ramps, stairs, terraces through international precedents. Two- and three-dimensional representational forms and techniques to generate, analyse and communicate topographies using analogue and digital techniques including hand-drawn studies, digital production methods and physical model-making are explored.
