It has been a very educational course, where the main emphasis has been on the design concept, while at the same time a lot of work has been put into technical solutions and construction material assessments. In many ways it shows how one as a landscape architect needs to keep everything in mind; from design to plan to descriptions; being creative in the design process but down to earth in how the project should be realised.

Construction design – Steps and stairs

Designing steps and stairs is no joke!

In this task I used Google SketchUp exclusively to model my outdoor set of stairs, create the technical drawings needed and plot the layouts.

  • 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?
