Details for undergraduate courses
  • Level 3 core unit in the Landscape Architecture major sequence
  • Category B broadening unit for students
  • Level 3 elective
Content
This studio critically explores larger scale planning and design issues within a regional context, both urban and rural. Analysis of ecological processes and established cultural footprints in conjunction with investigations in landscape theory form a basis for exploring large- and medium-scale design resolution. This studio may involve community collaboration and field trips.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) gather and creatively interpret and quantify information concerning broad-scale landscape systems including ecological and cultural processes; (2) develop and represent mapping techniques that translate this information for use in a critical design process; and (3) use this information to create and inform a considered design resolution to a detailed design brief.
Assessment
Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) interim folio assessment and (2) final folio. Further information is available in the unit outline.

To pass this unit, a student must: (a) achieve an overall mark of 50 per cent or higher for the unit; and (b) achieve the requisite standard(s) for the final folio component of the unit, as specified in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is available in this unit for those students who obtain a mark of at least 45 overall provided they have also obtained a mark of at least 45 in a specified component of the unit.
