DLB325 People and Place

Unit synopsis

This introductory level unit builds on the foundational knowledge of design history you learnt in DEB202. In it, you will explore theories of environment and behaviour, place-making and environmental psychology, including how people perceive and respond to landscapes both individually and collectively. You will learn about a wide range of foundational concepts developed from the 1960s to the present, regarding human interactions and relationships with the environment, essential to the formulation of sustainable landscape design propositions. You will explore and apply this knowledge in stages, including a site-specific project to develop your critical thinking and research skills. This unit extends the communication techniques you learnt in DEB100 to a wider range of written and visual methods of investigation and communication. It prepares you for further expansion of your intermediate level design understanding and skills in DLB400 and independent interpretation of the effects of past and present landscape designs in your third year unit DLB525.
