This module activates theories and methodologies concerning site and investigates the site as an urban landscape of technical and aesthetic features. Thus, the module draws on subjects such as Landscape Urbanism and Landscape Architecture, site mapping and spatial development, as well as geotechnical methods and theories; all of which contribute to the understanding of the site as a living organism. This course works with the spatial section as a tool in order to examine what is above and what is below the surface in order to facilitate a movement from analysis to conceptual design in an integrated process - a process within which, technique, nature and aesthetics mutually influence each other, and are parts of the same totality.
