The Landscape Design I studio course introduces students to the fundamental elements of landscape design at the scale of public space in the urban context. The studio investigates landscape design methods and approaches, based on morphological, experimental and visual, to develop spatial landscape settings with diverse programs and functions. The studio is structured in two modules, each focusing on different content and methodology. Architectonic Typologies, the first module of the studio focuses on the perception of land and its dynamics. As a fundamental component of the landscape, topography will be elaborated through its reciprocal relations with surrounding ecosystems and urban-peri urban contexts. At the edge of ecological crises, we are criticizing our behaviors and our perception towards living environments, and public spaces. As the topic of the second module, Social Ecology and The City covers a variety of dynamics of landscape ecology and the socio-cultural structure of the city. Along with this demographic and social structure, ecological design strategies will be discussed.
