This subjects introduces second-year landscape architecture students to the design of small public urban open space as a critical and core historical and contemporary objective of landscape architecture. Its primary intent is to develop design skills through the understanding of landscape materiality and ecosystems processes in human scaled outdoor settings. The subject explores the legacy of open space types through historical investigation; analyses, conceptualises, and documents public open open space examples based on in situ site visits, and measured and experiential drawings; and offers a vision for open space as an urban continuum, by the development of design drawings at broad and detailed scales.
