Visualizing Landscape Architecture: Functions, Concepts, Strategies

Loading...
Summary: "We don't sell gardens--we sell images of gardens." This observation on the part of a landscape architect makes it clear just how important it is that a design be effectively communicated to the community, clients, and the public. Drawings, models, simulations, and films communicate the designers' proposed ideas and solutions, but they also convey their attitude toward the use of nature and the environment. With myriad possibilities, including computer programs as well as hand drawings and models, which continue to be widely used, and strong competition in the field, there is now a huge variety of visual representations, with agreed-upon rules but also a great deal of freedom.

Talking Heads Chronology

Loading...
"Lester was an enthusiast; he jumped headfirst into the scene and never looked back. This piece stands as a passionate prose poem about our place in regard to Nature, the Universe and Reality. Yes, that's what this is, not just a record review. Way ahead of his time, Lester describes a Matrix-like world, and he begins to peel back the covers, exposing an unfriendly Mother Nature and the paranoid Truth."

The most advanced of any ancient civilization, Egypt's ancient kingdom lasted for 30 centuries, longer than any other, yet today, it remains one of the most mysterious. Home of the only one of the Eight Wonders of the Ancient World still standing, the Great Pyramid of Cheops was the tallest building in the world until well into the 1800s. This course chronologically surveys 3,000 years of recorded Egyptian history, from unification in 3100 BC through the death of Cleopatra in 30 BC.
