Planning and Design Methods
Modules of this Programme Theme:
General Aims of the Learning Process
Planning and design themes are usually complex, since many factors and processes related to economy, ecology and society have an influence on the various working tasks and levels.
This course aims to grapple with the complexity of the landscape and to allow students to formulate plans and solutions, which are transparent and readily comprehensible. A critical review of planning practices and design methods, which are oriented towards the future will be carried out.
At the same time the inherent responsibility of a landscape architect to think ahead will be initiated and fostered. The European context, an orientation towards problem-solving and client requirements, an eye for implementation, integration and flexibility are the guiding principles of the planning and design methods, which will be discussed.
The modules in this programme theme teach advance skills for use in planning and design, and will enable students to formulate and apply methods on their own for appropriate solutions in the planning process.
Hereby methods oriented towards the future make a contribution in solving such issues as urbanisation, changes in the cultural landscape, qualified planning and dynamic design processes, as well as a differentiated reflection upon typology and context.
