LANDSCAPE DESIGN ANALYSIS
LUIS MALDONADO + MANEL COLOMINES
The subject of the course deals with the study and practice of drawing and graphical representation as an instrument of development and representation of the landscape project, research and discussion for the discipline
Visits to build designs enable to develop a critical approach to design basic arguments and ideas, to their carrying out and social reception.
The course is structured by the workshop and study of ancient, modern and contemporary projects of local and international landscape, using graphic exercises of increasing scale, duration and difficulty.
On the basis of specific authors or periods the course tries to examine the diversity of techniques and modes of representation and their implications in the way of thinking and planning. It also addresses the need to incorporate time and processes (or landscape dynamics) to our representations. The conceptual relationship with analysis is understood as a tool for the discipline.
Throughout the course, students will learn to express the design process and extract information from it. To draw or to work with images is to think by doing.
