Courses taught by Jill Desimini
01112: Landscape Architecture II (STU 0111200)
Core Studio - 8 credits
Monday Wednesday Friday 2:00 - 6:00
Second semester core studio explores the research and design methods associated with interventions in complex urban conditions: sites layered with multiple interventions across a long span of history that present issues of connectivity, accessibility, identity, and need for contemporary programs. Students will learn to apply various forms of research - historical, social, material, spatial, and technical - to the formulation of project arguments and strategies. Emphasis will be placed on exploring the relationship between documentation, analytical research and design through diverse conceptual frameworks and projective representational techniques.
02142: Landscape Representation II (VIS 0214200)
Lecture - 4 credits
Tuesday Wednesday 10:00 - 11:30 Gund 518
Building on the foundation established in Landscape Representation I, this course seeks to expand on the essential tools and methods required to develop, test, produce and communicate spatial ideas with great clarity. The course will emphasize the depiction of the ground and the exploration of phenomenological qualities over time. A series of drawing types, including mappings, plans, sections, elevations, orthographic projections, and perspectives, and hybrids thereof, will synthesize and document the specific approaches explored throughout the semester. A range of scales will be covered.
Weekly lectures and exercises will provide the basis for investigation, research, and discussion. This format enables the development of sophisticated drawing and modeling skills through a fluency with digital media; a productive dialogue between the digital and analog; and a close reading of leading graphical representation examples in landscape architecture.
Software Covered: Adobe Suite, Rhino, RhinoTerrain, ArcMap, VRay.
