LACH3000 Landscape Architecture Studio—Expansions
- 6 points
|Semester 1||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- 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, building on the skills and knowledge acquired in Level 2, critically explores larger scale planning and design issues within a regional context, urban or rural. The design brief synthesises ecological regeneration and human (re-)connections to landscape. 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.
- Students are able to (1) critically analyse landscape architecture precedents of broad scale landscape systems including ecological and cultural processes; (2) develop creative representation of mapping techniques that translate site mapping and analysis information for use in a critical design process; (3) develop a design proposition to a brief in response to mapping and analysis of moderate complexity; (4) integrate concepts of sustainability in the management of natural, structural and material resources alongside ecological and technical areas of study; and (5) produce presentation images and/or models that represent a high quality and professional 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.
