GeoDesign is an emerging field in which the analytical rigor and methodological strategies of geospatial sciences are being fused with the forward thinking, creativity, and graphic capabilities of landscape architecture, urban planning and design. This subject explores geodesign models and applications. Specifically, the subject will introduce geodesign methods and their practical consequences in the reconfiguration of vision, knowledge, professional practice and embodied experience in geodesign.
Intended learning outcomes
- Knowledge of the multidimensional scope and scale of projects to which geodesign can be applied.
- Awareness of evaluations of specific geodesign model techniques relative to particular environmental and cultural contexts and conditions.
- Knowledge of geospatially oriented design through the investigation of interdisciplinary methods and the collaborative nature of the geodesign process.
- Skills to apply geodesign integrating relevant science- or value-based information in a manner that explores alternative solutions from a cross-disciplinary, decision-driven approach.
- Critical thinking and analysis
- Information gathering and critical synthesis
- Comprehension of complex concepts and the ability to express them lucidly in writing
- Communication of design and planning ideas verbally and graphically
- Methods of documentation and presentation
