This subject integrates ecological and cultural studies through advanced studio-based application. The issues of sustainability as they relate to the planning and design professions are explored through the medium of a major site, with a program of guided exercises culminating in a major presentation. Students will be expected to demonstrate critical awareness of the issues and pursue with rigour a strategy of design from the conceptual to the resolved, addressing the process of balancing resource use and conservation through time. Students will present and defend their concepts to an external jury of professionals and interested parties, using appropriate selected media and techniques that demonstrate advanced command. The basis of the design (theoretical, conceptual and practical) will also be presented in report form.
Progressive assessment of project and written work, and review of portfolio of all assignments set during semester, to the equivalent of not more than 10 000 words.
