The course will offer possibilities to work with various types of technology for design and planning which might include: 3D modelling, 3D visualizations, animation, immersive Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D printing, Reality Capture. The emphasis is put on investigation of the added values of using digital tools in design and planning scenarios for enhancing collaboration and communication. The Virtual Reality Lab (VR-Lab) will offer an arena for testing and experimenting of new ways of knowledge-sharing, increasing collaboration, motivation and engaged learning. The course is based on a combination of lectures, practice hours at computer laboratory, excursions and group work with individual or group supervision. The course might follow one the following approaches: First: Introducing a specific digital tool with the aim to investigate its potentials in design and planning. Examples includes studying BIM for landscape, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality. Second approach: Introducing a case study based on a real project with the aim to use digital tools and 3D visualizations to understand many aspects and problems connected it.  Examples includes studying specific urban or landscape location, reconstruction of historical gardens and sites, studying the future development and potentials of a certain site.  After being introduced to digital tools and the case study, students are required to investigate the topic individually or in groups and will be asked to identify the approach that they will follow.  Students would get access to the VR-Lab to test theories and aspects connected their topics. Group presentations will be scheduled to monitor the development level of investigation work and provide feedback. At the end of the course, students or groups are expected to present the final work and hand-in a description of their work. There are possibilities that some topics that we will deal with in the course can be offered in collaboration with other courses at master level. More information is presented at the beginning of the course. Check more about the course from this link here!
