|Subject Overview:||This subject explores landscape as three-dimensional design. Through a series of related design exercises it investigates and tests conceptual, metaphoric, structural and technical characteristics of landform manipulation and material application. |
Aspects of site grading, earthwork manipulation and innovative use of materials will be explored, including their experiential, functional and ecological implications.
The importance of landform modelling to the design vocabulary of landscape architecture will be introduced, alongside fundamental principles of drainage, levels, surveying and representation techniques.
Project work equivalent to 5000 words in total.
