Landscape Symposium, Melbourne, AUSTRALIA

This year the Landscape Architecture Symposium was undertaken as intensive workshops. The focus of the workshop was to develop and engage the students to develop a critical understanding of contemporary design strategies and techniques to test a variety of these through the process of making and representation leading to many possible design outcomes. The Symposium captured students from upper pool design research studios, one of which was superfantasticRIO, lectured by OUTR team members.

Other objectives included:
Develop an understanding of basic principles of formation
Develop a conceptual understanding and an operational knowledge of dynamic systems
Testing explorations through the production of various digital and physical prototypes

Workshop Leader: Tim Schork of MESNE Design Studio with: Dr. Charles Anderson, Craig Douglas, Greg Afflick, Bridget Keane.
