This course discusses the possibility of remodeling our Ookayama campus from the standpoint of the social significance of existence of university or college.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Acquire the design vocabulary, sense of scales, observation skills on people’s behaviours and environments, spatial imagination skills and expression skills that are needed for designing the landscape.
2) Acquire an ability to creatively integrate distinctive elements of open space such as temporal elements of the weather and seasons, unspecified users, unexpected ways of use and issues relating to space management, and an ability to draw a draft expressing these integrated elements.
