- Details for undergraduate courses
- Level 2 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 2 elective
- This studio explores the speculative and dynamic nature of landscape architectural design by studying the relationships between culture and site through time. The studio develops site analysis and creative strategies in the design process based on precedents and landscape architecture theory. Experimentation and speculation are encouraged in both design process and in representation.
- Students are able to (1) analyse landscape architecture precedents to generate creative ideas for landscape architectural design processes; (2) interpret a site's social, cultural and ecological contexts in a detailed site analysis towards the development of a design proposal; (3) develop conceptual landscape design propositions of moderate complexity in response to site analysis and a design brief; (4) incorporate ecological and technical areas of study into the landscape architectural design process and design proposition; and (5) produce presentation images and/or models that represent a high quality and competent standard to aid in the understanding of the proposed landscape design concepts.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) interim folio 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.
