Visualising landscape architecture: Combination techniques

00-Fugleperspektiv-håndtegning---Fase-1_ferdig

Perspective from in-progress proposal for the new harbour-front park at Sandvika.

How is your workflow when creating visuals for your project? Through a range of projects I’ve explored several approaches to visualisation, and presently I feel most comfortable with the combined use of traditional techniques and available software. The reason for this is the desire to add a personal depth to the image, which, in my opinion, is harder to achieve solely through the use of digital renderings. This post will explain the steps used in creating the perspective image above. Read the rest of this entry »

SketchUp – Favorite plugins for Landscape Architecture

We have been using Trimble SketchUp quite extensively as of late. It’s increasingly useful these days after the implemention of IFC classification to objects (albeit limited, it automatically classifies unknown objects to IFCBuildingElementProxy elements, ensuring the entire model is included when collaborating with other disciplines). Below are some extensions I find useful at a daily basis. This list will be updated as additional extensions are discovered. Feel free to leave tips in the comment section below!

Working life – AutoCAD commands I can’t live without

Fact of the day – when it comes to AutoCAD, the best way to get around the ribbon or button placement changing every other update is to learn the commands by heart. Granted, there’s a ton of them, some frequently used, some rarely – and some can be counted as hidden gems. Some of the following you might have encountered through the studies, some may have been introduced to you by chance or at the office while working on a specific task, but in any case these are a few commands I can’t live without.  Read the rest of this entry »

Vi leker ikke stinett

GoogleEarth-bilde

Ok, så man skal planlegge et stinett og ønsker å ta eksisterende stier på stedet i bruk, da dette medfører minst mulig inngrep og stiene som oftest ligger pent i terrenget. Problemet: stinettet er ikke kartlagt, og å utføre interpolert gjettelek med kartgrunnlag hvis ekvidistanse er på 1 meter er uaktuelt. Da tar vi med oss GPS på tur. Read the rest of this entry »

  • We need to talk about water
    They say that the future wars and conflicts will be about water. Battles will be fought over a valuable and vital resource due to the decreasing levels of it. Despite our dependency of it, we seem to take it for granted. Is the ubiquity of water causing us to manage it so callously?

    FN sier at menneske aktiviteter som å bygge ut på verdifull areal kan utrydde opp mot 1 million arter. Betyr dette at vi nordmenn må gi opp hyttedrømmen?
