All landscapes are the consequence of a myriad of relationships between the geology, water, vegetation, animals, weather, social norms and cultural values. The nature and balance – or lack of balance – in these relationships are important to understand if we are going to manipulate or rehabilitate the landscape.
In this studio students will use what they learn about landscape systems to develop design and management strategies. Through the studio project students will demonstrate their understanding for the value of the strategic approach and how it this is applied at various scales frrom the regional to the site specific.
Students will build on knowledge of the tdesign process, technology and plant material to develop an appropraite scheme.

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All students will be required to print submissions and present work to a design jury.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Students will be assessed on participation in studio through the completion of taks and exercies. Refer to Canvas.
