Digital Delineation Course
Introduction to digital landscape visualization
Landscape is a difficult subject to imagine, represent, simulate and document due to its organic, systemic nature and lifecycle. Moreover, most software applications are not specifically designed for the challenge as they were conceived with another user in mind. However, staple applications such as AutoCAD, Rhino and Photoshop are so complex that alternative personalities beyond those that they were originally designed for are latent within. Students learn to literally sidestep any limitations by becoming skilled at moving between applications to generate hybrid visuals that are relevant to the design and representation of landscape architecture. The aspiration for this course is for students to transcend computing as a means to an end, to find their own voice, and to remember to privilege ideas for landscapes over celebrations of technical wizardry.
