LANDSCAPE DESIGN STUDIO I
PEPA MORÁN + LIVIA VALENTINI + LIDIA CARRILLO
In Landscape Design Studio I (MBLandArch) the student discovers the approach to the keys of a landscape architecture project. Students are professionals trained in their own disciplines in different countries, who undertake the specific knowledge and sensitivity of landscaping studies.
The course develops various exercises of different level of complexity: from small projects seeking to test different visions of the known, adding new and adjusted technical definitions, to projects which response is built on the strength of the idea.
These exercises try to deepen in the reflexive act of the project at a new discipline. This aid comes in addition to interventions and small seminars that reflect today’s culture related to landscaping.
The Landscape Design Studio I, offered the students the possibility of developing a project that followed the foundations of the international competition Radicepura Garden Festival. Because of this, the students were able to send their projects done in class and participate in the contest, leaving two of the teams among the five winning gardens and two among the ten finalists.
The winning teams had the opportunity to implement their project from the initial design to the participation in situ of all phases of its construction in addition to meeting key figures in the world of landscape architecture.
