Class Topic

PDLA Landscape Media II (ARCH7182) – Materials & Fabrication

Brief introduction to the course

This course introduces students to essential digital and manual tools of design and representation in landscape architecture. Students explore techniques in material testing and digital fabrication as an iterative part of the design process with digital platforms and procedural tools as key elements of a cross-media approach to digital production. Shifting from material analysis to visual programming and 1-to-1 prototyping, the course covers a variety of scales and modes. Three projects transform the products of material observations into design methodologies and create an understanding of abstraction, rigor, and transformation through experimentation.

Number of seats for observers/visitors

4 seats per session (Enrolment will be on a first-come, first-served basis.)

Purpose of this Session

In the first part of this session, students will discuss their progress on fabrication processes with the course instructor and their peers. The second part of the session will introduce a new course brief and will conclude with a Q&A session in which students can address technical and conceptual concerns.
