Details for undergraduate courses
  • Level 3 core unit in the Landscape Architecture major sequence
  • The area of knowledge for this unit is Design and Creative Arts
  • Category B broadening unit for students
  • Level 3 elective
This studio consists of a small to medium scale landscape project, requiring a high level of design resolution. It engages contemporary landscape theory and inventive construction techniques in order to produce novel, speculative landscape resolutions.
Students are able to (1) critically engage current landscape theory through creation of a high-quality folio displaying sophisticated spatial composition and well-resolved, buildable forms; (2) apply the principles and practices of design through critical appraisal of the strengths and weaknesses of design outcomes and strong comprehension of the future oriented management of landscapes; and (3) exhibit developed skills of critique in analysis of the designs of others.
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 requirements(s) or a mark of 50 per cent or greater, whichever is higher and specified in the unit outline, for the final folio component.

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.
