  • Overview

    This unit introduces you to foundational manual (non-digital) landscape visualisation skills and applications. Visualisation is the ability to imagine and give form to design ideas. Landscape designers work in four dimensions and thus employ a variety of tools to think about and communicate three- and four-dimensional ideas. This unit introduces you to the skills and techniques you'll need to support this design visualisation with a focus on analogue (non-digital) media, manual drawing skills and simple model making. You will learn and experiment with design and discipline-specific language including application of these representational techniques in the co-requisite unit DLB100. This pairing of units prepares you for the ongoing series of landscape design studio units.
    Learning Outcomes
    Upon the successful completion of the unit, you should be able to:
    1. Discuss and employ foundational principles and concepts of manual landscape design and representation processes.
    2. Analyse, select, and creatively synthesise relevant manual visualisation techniques to formulate effective landscape design propositions.
    3. Employ proficient manual skills to communicate landscape experiences, spaces, forms, qualities, processes and design ideas.
