20 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: The integrated urban design focuses on developing proposals for an area of urban greenspace regeneration from the initial planning strategies through to site masterplanning and detailed design. The module is closely integrated with the Materials of Landscape module LSC333, and also draws on and applies theoretical material delivered in specialist Ecology and Planning modules. The module requires students to develop their own design manifesto in response to the client brief and also in response to contemporary social and environmental challenges. The module looks to build on skills in landscape spatial design and communication through a reflective design research process which also draws on and applies critical analysis of relevant precedent studies.

Teaching Methods: Lectures, Seminars, Tutorials, Laboratory work, Fieldwork, Independent Study,
