Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

The focus of this studio unit is on design as a process of exploration, integration and synthesis. Design studies explore concepts of purpose and place, the public-private interface, socio-cultural context and of form and structure. Responses to brief requirements, site, structure and skin, shelter and materiality are investigated and integrated into design learning. Creative and analytical skills are developed through studies in abstraction, interpretation and synthesis. Project based learning is undertaken in a studio environment. The brief requirements include criteria related to issues of sustainability, social responsibility and the application of research in design.

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Apply the spatial concepts and core skills of landscape design;

2. Implement and evaluate the design lifecycle as a process of creative and practical exploration, integration and synthesis;

3. Develop and review design strategies and responses to design project briefs; and
