This studio approaches the designed landscape from an ecological perspective. The design process in the studio relies on ecological knowledge to inform, inspire, and shape the designed landscape. Different types of constructed ecologies are examined, including urban parks, constructed wetlands; green infrastructure; urban forests; green roofs and walls. Studio projects focus on the catchment scale and take landscape design as a critical and creative means of improving ecological and social performance. Skills in landform manipulation, wetland construction, and planting for climate and habitat health are integrated into the design agenda. Projects incorporate digital technologies as a means of testing design propositions.
