School of Design and Environment (Architecture)
Modular Credits: 4
This studio based module introduces basic concepts in landscape design through a series of short design exercises. The exercises will begin with site inventory and analysis, followed by studies on external spaces, scale, planning and layout, covering issues of handicap and safety requirements and discussing the use of both hardscape and softscape materials. Tropical climatic considerations are emphasized. The final project draws together all the elements in a small scale design task.
