Content This studio resolves a studio project of small to medium landscape scale to a high level of design resolution. The studio engages contemporary landscape theory and inventive construction techniques in creating speculative landscape resolutions.
Outcomes Students are able to (1) critically engage current landscape theory; (2) show developed skills of critique in analysis of the designs of others; (3) display a considered manifestation of poetic ideas in well-resolved, buildable form utilising a full range of materials; (4) generate designs which demonstrate sophisticated spatial composition; and (5) produce a set of presentation images and/or models which reach a high-quality professional standard.
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.
