is quintessential for the work of

PURPOSE OF LANDSCAPE
*To translate the design and concept
of a particular public area
- conceptual plan
-section and elevation
*To translate data for further
analysis during planning and
designing of the public area
*To explain as to how each natural
elements will be integrated into the
site, eg.planting plan

Cracked Concrete Garden proves
that many plants have a way of

undergone numerous shifts of
representation over the past
several decades. This was a period
where current technological context

typology to reflect the intended
nature of the site.

seasonality and to communicate design
proposals through a range of
drawings. It is important to consider
how the drawings operate as
representations of space.
