Digital Landscape Visualisation

The aim of the course is to provide training in different methods for landscape visualisation in landscape design and planning and, through a range of examples and references, create a broad understanding of the possibilities and limitations of digital visualisation within landscape architecture and spatial planning.
After having completed the course, the student should:
- be able to use digital tools for 3D modelling, picture editing and presentation in order to allow the landscape to be visualised in different stages of the design and planning process.
- have a basic understanding of the technology behind 3D modelling and digital pictures
- have good theoretical knowledge of visual communication
- have up-to-date knowledge of how digital tools are used for visualising the landscape nationally and internationally
- be able to critically appraise the use of digital tools for visualising the landscape

Objectives

The aim of the course is to provide training in different methods for landscape visualisation in landscape design and planning and, through a range of examples and references, create a broad understanding of the possibilities and limitations of digital visualisation within landscape architecture and spatial planning.

Learning objectives:
After having completed the course, the student should:
- be able to use digital tools for 3D modelling, picture editing and presentation in order to allow the landscape to be visualised in different stages of the design and planning process.
- have a basic understanding of the technology behind 3D modelling and digital pictures
- have good theoretical knowledge of visual communication
- have up-to-date knowledge of how digital tools are used for visualising the landscape nationally and internationally
- be able to critically appraise the use of digital tools for visualising the landscape.

Content

The course contains lectures in subjects relevant to digital visualisation of the landscape. In practical exercises, students will work with digital tools and reflect on different approaches. Students will be encouraged to look for new angles of approach to improve the visualisation and presentation of their material. Literature seminars will deal with visual communication and how it affects landscape design and planning. Emphasis will be placed on completion of practical assignments and on theoretical understanding of the subject.

Seminars, assignments and project work are compulsory.
