People and Place: First Year Landscape Architecture Students Re-envision South Bank Leeds
As part of the project first year Landscape Architecture students investigated, surveyed, documented, and analysed the existing conditions of the area, the details of the specific sites they were looking at, as well as the people and professions in that area, in order to identify current challenges and reveal hidden opportunities. Anchored in their research and observation findings, students conceptualized, designed, and showcased multiple modes of representation under the theme of People and Place. Throughout the process, students not only designed landscape interventions and proposed strategies for transformation, but also developed the skills of critical thinking and logic design decision making. They demonstrated the prospective role of their projects in this particular context in addition to showing their empathetic awareness of people’s life, activities, and experience.
