The subject engages with contemporary landscape architecture practice through guided investigation projects on materiality and technology. Students will select an area of interest from a list of nominated topics to investigate through research-design exercises. The subject emphasises exploratory investigations (which could extend to fabrication) and encourages the uncovering of new knowledge that can extend the possibilities of landscape architectural design.
The subject establishes research-design approaches that are further reinforced in Design Research, Design Thesis and Landscape Practice subjects.
On completion of the subject, students should have:
Illustrated research paper (1000 words) due week 4 (25%)
Exploratory design application (equivalent to 3500 words) due end of semester (60%)
