The landscape architecture environments stream gives you the opportunity to study, explore, research and challenge notions of landscape layers, landscape systems and landscape materials. You will study the complexity and dynamic processes of environments through a wide range of design based learning activities such as drawing, documenting, mapping, recording, researching, making, fabrication and prototyping. The environments stream consists of four distinct courses: environments 1-4 Environments 2, the second course in the course sequence, focuses on relational aspects of landscape systems through landform and builds on the knowledge and skills that you have gained in environments 1. You will learn to recognize landscape as site and be able to engage in the landscape system through design intervention. You will adopt landscape architecture as a relational condition through design investigations in topography and landform manipulation. Aspects of the course focus on landscape architecture specific contour manipulation techniques such as grading. Learning activities include field research, lectures and workshop exercises that involve creative making and analog and digital drawing tasks through which you will adopt an understanding of landscape systems as relational condition. This course is a designated Work Integrated Learning (WIL) course for the Bachelor of Landscape Architectural Design, in which your knowledge and skills will be applied and assessed in a real or simulated workplace context, projects and placements and where feedback from industry and/ or community is integral to your experience.
All relevant course materials are included.
Pen/pencil and notebook.
