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.
For this studio you will be responding to these relationships and proposing a deisgn brief and site response that explores the environmentatl and cultural relationships.

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.
