Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The Landcape Design Studio aims at defining and experimenting (at the different scales at which Landscape Architecture works) categories, instruments and strategies to describe, interpret and transform open spaces and landscapes, in their natural and anthropological components, also in relation to the historical transformations and to the social-economic and territorial context to which they belong, with particular reference to the objectives of sustainable development.

The studio problematizes issues of orientation and experience, scale and pattern, topographic form, climatic and vegetative influences, and varied ecological processes that help define open spaces, in urban and natural context. In the center of the sequence of design studios along the master program, the course helps students develop spatial literacy and proficiency in diverse modes of inquiry in landscape architecture.

Landscape Architecture is often required not only to build over the ground, but also to transform the ground through a sort of “moulding”. The course of Geomorphology and Physical Geography is integrated to the studio with the aim of providing the fundamental knowledges in order to reach coherent and workable design choices in relation to the geological substratum as well as in relation to the the vegetation structure of the site

Course Description:

This Landscape Design Studio focuses on introducing students to innovative approaches to landscape architecture and on supporting them to achieve a critical vision, knowledge and tools to develop designs for landscapes of the future. Putting the user on the first level of importance, emphasizes the real needs of people, issues related to the environment and ecology, regional, geographical and cultural issues and the urgent need to reach sustainable environments and landscapes. The project site is located on Sardinia northeast coast (Italy). It focuses covers issues that spans from urban to territorial scale. A Particular emphasis will be dedicated to cultural and environmental heritage on the attempt to preserve small villages and protect the environmental fragility of the context. The specific attention dedicate to geomorphology and environmental design will contribute to the achievement of the objectives.






Modalità di valutazione

Articulated into two steps:

  • Midterm open critic of the ‘work progress’
  • The final project proposal presentation. Theoretical aspects and specifics technical measures and precautions achieved during the course must be highlighted during the explanation of the project. Students are invited to present the complete project process through a short PowerPoint accompanied by models and detailed panels that will have to be hung during the presentation and discussion of the project.
