KurzbeschreibungThis course focuses on techniques for modifying ground conditions. The shape and material properties of the ground is fundamental for how water moves, what vegetation grows and how changes in microclimatic conditions manifest on site. For landscape architects, learning the mechanisms for transforming the surface of the earth opens up site-based design possibilities.
LernzielThe students learn comprehensive skills for reading and modifying topography, soil and water, and the potentials these methods open up for design.
InhaltThrough a series of short exercises and on-site fieldwork, this course teaches the fundamental techniques of land and water manipulation, focusing on earthwork, drainage, soil and basic construction methods. Students learn analog and digital grading techniques, working with landform modification in Rhino and Grasshopper. During the two-week module, students will do a close study, both on and off site, of two landscapes; the designed urban quarry of Parc de Buttes Chaumont in Paris and the 2022 Foundation Studio I site, a gravel quarry in Lleida, Spain.

The fundamental course Materials and Construction I (7th November – 18th November 2022) is closely linked to the Foundation Studio I.
SkriptThe reader is handed out during the week prior to the module.
LiteraturRelevant literature is included in the reader.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThe course is aimed exclusively at the students of the master's program in landscape architecture.
