School of Design and Environment (Architecture)
Modular Credits: --
This module reviews design principles in terms of plant design characteristics and responses to environment and seasonal changes. There is an emphasis on plants as unique elements of landscape design. Both aesthetic and functional uses of plants will be covered. Design that favours natural distribution and ecological considerations will be explored. Class assignments will involve graphic and presentational techniques using computer and small-scale modelling to explore architectonic aspects of planting like massing, texture, colour, form and shape.
