Object definitions for landscape architecture and standardisation processes in Norway

Capture

The BIM for landscape initiative in Norway has reached an important milestone: The first edition of the landscape architecture information model is now complete. The list of object definitions was released earlier this week, complete with English translations, and revised spreadsheets of objects and components were published earlier this summer. The full list of objects and spreadsheets is located at www.bimforlandskap.no. Read the rest of this entry »

Portable visualising

I have been using my iPad for sketching on the go for a while now. Practically, while certainly up to par, it cannot fully replace the fluidity or feel of my pen and paper for rapid sketches. However, it is still my weapon of choice for creating design drafts on-site based on photo material, which after some tweaking can yield some pretty eye-catching results.

Garden viewThis is a photo from my friend’s place. He’s in the process of upgrading his new home, and have some ideas for the garden. After I import the photo to my iPad, I launch Sketchbook and base my sketch on it.

Afterwards, I add filters in Snapseed, and suddenly it’s not just a design sketch anymore. I have a visualisation that is actually presentable – and I did it in twenty minutes on-site.

Garden design detailNow, this is a common procedure for creating visuals in Photoshop on your desktop, but you can’t shrug off the sheer power of being able to create this on the go.

App review – Architactile Inception

Architactile InceptionI recently had the pleasure of testing Architactile Inception for iPad, an application developed for the professional architect. The application is designed for the purpose of gathering and sorting information in the pre-project phase; including budget overviews, client guidelines, team member information and visualisations on project progression, all wrapped up in a neat package which can be exported swiftly and elegantly for client review. As a landscape architecture student outside the US, I am not exactly within the bounds of the target user group of this application. As such, I write this review based on my impressions of the application features, look and feel to the best of my ability.

Om krokitegning – aktuell artikkel i Numer 88

Billedkunstner og universitetslektor Christian Montarou ved ILP, UMB, har skrevet en artikkel titulert “Krokitegning og kroppskognisjon” i tidsskriftet for tegning, illustrasjon og bokkunst, NUMER 88, utg. 02 2011. I denne artikkelen beskrives fenomenet som oppstår i krokitegning hvor man under tidspress ledes inn i en særegen registreringstilstand av dynamikk, bevegelse og form, resultererende i motiver som i alle fall i mitt tilfelle endret oppfatningen av tegning som sådan. Jeg har Montarous kurs friskt i minne, da jeg selv hadde stått på stedet hvil tegneteknisk de siste ti årene før krokistegning snudde tidligere erfaringer på hodet og åpnet for ny, fundamental forståelse.

Denne artikkelen anbefales alle med interesse for tegning.
