The subject addresses the relationship of infrastructures, whether physical or invisible, to the landscape planning and spatial design. The concept of landscape as infrastructure is explored through the mapping of other key infrastructures and their interaction. Beginning with the tangible and visually dominant infrastructures such as transportation, the power grid and surface water network, the subject progresses through the study of the underground, airborne and intangible infrastructures that nevertheless shape patterns of habitation and land use.

Through the mapping and contextualisation of other key forms of infrastructure, both conventional and invisible, students identify areas of exchange and conflict with landscape infrastructures.
