This is a studio capstone subject that bridges design and ecological science. Studio projects will address ecological design as fundamental to modern landscape architectural practice. The studio integrates teaching and learning activities through a digital design platform, with the core program of Rhino, to enhance design skills and prepare students for entry into the postgraduate professional degree. Students will receive weekly feedback in studio and indications of their progress.

Intended learning outcomes

Having completed this subject it is expected that the student be able to:

  • Analyse a site and apply ecological theories to practice;
  • Develop a palette of approaches to ecological design;
  • Design at the scales of the masterplan to detail design;
  • Design experimentally through a digital platform.
