|Content||This studio investigates building technologies, with a special emphasis on construction detailing as it applies to the profession of landscape architecture. It is intended to combine studio investigations with the hands-on construction of site details and the use of drawing as a means of design resolution and communication. Students refine the conceptual, lateral and poetic skills integral to the scope of studios in the School of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts (ALVA) while synthesising and developing the skills and knowledge necessary to resolve a scheme to a state of 'buildability'.|
|Outcomes||Students are able to (1) design and build with appropriate materials and demonstrate their understanding of how landscapes are constructed through technical drawings; (2) use drawings as a means of design resolution and communication and an awareness of and familiarity with the concepts, methods, mechanisms and settings of landscape constructions; and (3) become familiar with relevant Australian Design Standards and understand the material repercussions of their design decisions.|
|Assessment||This comprises a folio submission (100 per cent).|
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
