Emnets innhold:

Through field trip(s) students get an insight in the particularities of the specific case study and site, and how to carry out fieldwork (under consideration of research ethics). The specific landscape is explored, documented and mapped in the field and by other available sources, such as maps and written material. The analysis of all material and the design process are carried out within a studio framework.

Within this framework students acely explore different theories, concepts, and methods that are relevant for the development of the design project, and test their application and relevance in an iterative process.

The students are guided through the project by lectures, short presentations, assignments as well as continuous feedback to the developing work. Feedback is provided by the responsible staff, and in the form of peer reviews, in a midterm and a final review.
