Aims/Description: The module gives a broad introduction to different approaches to designing and detailing a typical range of landscape structures in different design contexts. It introduces a basic understanding of the properties of different construction materials and how appropriate detailing can support sustainable design. The project is integrated with the architecture design studio and students are required to produce a design solution and accompanying construction details for an area of open space related to their architecture. All drawings are produced using computer aided design software.
