This subject was formerly called Studio 4: Planning.
A studio-based subject that formulates strategies for dealing with the broader landscape. Whole areas (catchments, townships and settings, landscape units) are used as the basis for analysis from multiple viewpoints and values including the geo-physical, cultural and scenic. Various established methods of landscape planning are introduced (including McHargian overlay) and compared as the basis for a selected strategy for intervention, conservation, management and action on a particular site. The operating statutory frameworks and basic GIS applications are introduced as a basis for selecting work methods and communication strategies appropriate for this scale and type of work in the private and public domain.
This subject aims to develop knowledge of, and skills in, selecting and creatively applying established methods of landscape assessment and planning to a broad landscape, including precedents in application locally and internationally. In responding to broad-scale sites and complex issues, students develop skills in contributing to and managing group work and outcomes.
