How video is changing Landscape Architecture

Over recent years video and digital animation have become another design tool for landscape architects and education and professional institutions.

For landscape architects digital animation and 3D rendering has become cheaper and cheaper to produce with tools such as Sketchup, 3Dmax, rhino, and maya allowing design firms to give clients another perspective and sense of place. Some of the amazing videos that are now produced are using a mixture of pure animation, still renders and imagery are stunning to watch. With the recent advances with VRL and 3D its a matter of time that the only limit will be the imagination of designers.

Recently education and professional institutions have started promoting their events and courses with the advent of cheap digital video cameras and the ability to publish cheaply with sites such as Youtube, Vimeo, Viddler, Metacafe, Youku. Recently professional institutions such as ASLA, AILA, Landscape Institute have used Youtube and self published video to increase the profile of landscape architects.

Below are some examples of how video is being used in landscape architecture. I would love to hear and see how you and your organisation are using video in landscape architecture. Drop me an email at damian@worldlandscapearchitect.com.

Bond University to have new school of architecture

Bond University located on the Gold Coast of Australia is to introduce a new school of architecture due to the increasing demand for sustainably built environments. The new school will open in January 2011 in a newly built 6-star Green Star rated School of Sustainable Development building. The Soheil Abedian School of Architecture will offer 50 commencing places in 2011 for the six semester undergraduate program.

Professor George Earl, who will oversee the establishment of the School said, “The demand to design living environments that are sustainable and to address climate change issues are increasing exponentially.

“Climate change has required we evolve the way we design buildings.  Two years ago, the school undertook a survey of green rated building in Australia with 12 projects identified. The survey is currently being repeated but with 140 projects now participating.

UC Davis students have designs on Washington Square

18 students from UC Davis are creating design concepts for Washington Park in San Francisco to be presented to the Friends of Washington Square Park and the city’s Recreation and Park Department. The San Francisco Chronicle reported the recent site visit by the students and Marianne Bertuccelli, the department’s manager for Washington Square and 35 other sites in the city’s northeast.

The park sees a large amount of activity during the day and especially on summer weekends. The San Francisco Chronicle quoted Bertuccelli as saying

“We’re interested in seeing what the students come up with, and how that compares with our thoughts. … I’d love to form a consensus with the community about something we can implement on a phased-in basis.”
