Content

SRL731 challenges students to consider the position, evolution and ‘art’ of designing landscapes (whether small or large) and the antecedents and thinking processes that were employed to chart and construct these places. But, unlike most landscape architectural history-theory units around Australia, while their emphasis is upon the history of place and designed landscapes, this Unit places a greater emphasis upon analysing the ‘making’ and ‘narrating’ of the designed landscape to enable you to question the logic behind the design, the intent and words of the designer(s) in ideating and crafting the place, and their attention to the qualities and post-design outcomes of the place.

This unit seeks to provide a foundational overview of the history, theory and practice of the evolution, exemplars and role of the profession of landscape architecture in Australia and internationally. Part addresses theories inherent in landscape architecture including reviewing their authors, precedent texts, and exemplars arising from these theories. A second part explores the historical evolution of the profession of landscape architecture internationally, and its foundations in Australia into a profession including its contemporary activities, proponents and key practices. A third part examines the ethos of the Australian landscape architecture profession including its advocates, key influencers and precedents, and the role and activity of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA). The last part of the Unit considers the significant texts and projects that embody the aims and objectives of the Australian profession together with engaging in and appreciating the narrating of design, constructing designs, and illustrating designs.
