Landscape Architecture taster session
This interactive session will consider how Landscape Architects begin to analyse, draw and reimagine a space in order to deliver important environmental and social benefits. Using your own street as a case study we will start to question how to interpret, and possibly improve, the space.
Reimagining spaces for environmental and social benefit
During this interactive session we will be introducing some simple techniques used by Landscape Architects to analyse, draw and begin reimagining a space. Focusing on your street, or a street which is familiar to you, we will start by considering how it is structured and what defines the space. We will then begin to analyse and reflect on how the streetscape might be adapted in order to deliver wider environmental and social benefits.
This exercise will enable participants to start analysing how external spaces are shaped and defined and to begin thinking creatively about their own vision for improving the landscape and more specifically streetscapes. The exercise will also help students who may later on be asked to supply a supporting portfolio when applying for our undergraduate courses.
Participants may find it helpful to have paper and a pencil available to begin drawing their ideas
