This subject provides students with an introduction to the fundamentals of design for Landscape Architecture approached from the perspective of site, and the influences of topography, geology, geomorphology and hydrology. Working at multiple scales on a specific site, students explore the physicality of grading flat ground, slopes and hilltops; the design of interventions such as ramps, retaining walls, stairs and terraces; techniques of representation including analogue drawing, digital production and physical model making; and the potential for designing landscapes that are expressive, experiential and dynamic.
