Landscape Institute Design Studio II: Methods - Designing Landscape Systems


This studio continues to build on basic design principles including graphic expression, spatial definition, proportion and scale. The focus will be on spatial and environmental systems. Students hone their conceptual thinking and learn to successfully incorporate the dynamics of the site including: soils, topography, hydrology and related factors into their design thinking. Students also explore the rules of proportion, composition and scale in landscape design to shape space. Classes include illustrated lectures, discussions, project critiques and site visits.
