The objective for the course for this year was to explore new potentials and complications associated with 3D modelling and visualizations in interaction with landscape, urban systems and dynamics, architecture and construction. The emphasis was put on investigation of the added values of using 3D in design. The course offers the possibilities to work with latest developments in 3D technology for collaboration and communication of design concepts represented by the launch of a new 3D visualization software package for designers “LUMION3D” developed by ACT-3D B.V.
The Virtual Reality Lab at UMB provided an arena for testing and experimenting of new ways of knowledge-sharing, increasing collaboration, motivation and engaged learning. Students were able to test new potentials through a number of study cases connected to the following topics: Outdoor lighting scenarios; urban planning; large scale landscape planning; landscape architecture; designing with plants. The topics were connected to the following courses offered both at ILP and IMT:
. LAA320 - Outdoor Lighting.
. LAA340 - Sustainable Design and Management of blue/green environmental.
. LAA350 - Architecture, urban form and development.
. LAA 224 - Designing with plants
. TBA310 - Building Design III.
The following students participated to the course for 2012: Arta Bilinska, Christina Sæter, Hedvig Godvik Olsen, Hege Tvete, Hege Tjoflåt Borsheim, Jesper Vesøen, Kathrine Jensen, Katrina Ottesen Stone, Knut Runar Bruflot, Kristiana Sakina Novika, Maria Annett Callanta Borgersen, Marianne Finserås Larsen, Ola Martinsen, Pål Dixon Sandberg.
