Geo Design

The module focuses on developing the knowledge and techniques of site analysis and planning, which are essential for sustainable landscape architecture. The module is named as “Geo design” because it emphasizes on the systematic thinking of site and site alternatives in broad context, in which the analysis is supported by contemporary theories and methodologies in landscape and urban ecology. This course will develop skills and explore issues and chances of modeling and understanding the physical and visual aspects of sites and their context using georeferenced digital resources. The topics of the module include site inventory, site and landscape assessment, landscape and vegetation modeling, scenario techniques, and interactive 3D visualization as well as how geo data and these methods can be incorporated into the planning and design process. The tool of geographic information system (GIS) is provided for the development of advanced techniques in analyzing, evaluating, managing, and modeling.
