LA 1101 Landscape Representation I

Landscape Representation I is the foundations design studio for first-year landscape architecture students. The studio fosters the practice of discipline, craftsmanship, and intellectual skills through the development of drawing and making through the iterative and reflective design process. Focus is on conceptual thinking, ordering, space, and composition in two and three dimensions. The midterm project investigates landform patterning through the conceptual manipulation of the ground plane in an installation of earthworks. For the final project a new “refiguring” of the pattern was required to be a part of a real “site” on campus. Modes of analog drawing and making include: collage, printing processes, photomontage, sketch perspective, diagramming, collage mapping, orthographic projections, and modeling.
