LA 1102 Landscape Representation II (Spring 2016)

Landscape Representation II is the second foundations design studio for first-year landscape architecture students. The studio provides a foundational familiarity with methods, media, and the common tools in the discipline of landscape architecture. The first project reviews orthographic projections by drafting a built project. The midterm project investigates modeling tools and methods while researching varying landform typologies. The final project explores the design process through diagramming and redesigning the LSU Campus Quad as the “site.” Both analog and digital modes of drawing and making include: modeling with clay and laser-cut models; measured drawings based on known data, measurements, and aerial photography; illustrative site plans and supporting diagrams using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
