Landscape Architecture Environments 2 (Semester 2)

Available for study on campus

This course focuses on relational aspects of landscape systems through landform and builds on the knowledge and skills that you have gained in environments 1.
You will learn to recognise landscape as site and be able to engage in the landscape system through design intervention. You will adopt landscape architecture as a relational condition through design investigations in topography and landform manipulation. Aspects of the course focus on landscape architecture specific contour manipulation techniques such as grading.
