Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Unlike concrete or masonry, plants are a living building material that changes in the course of the seasons and the years. Their growth and varying appearance are factors that must be considered when designing and planning.

In addition, plants can also be employed to create different design levels. They can be used as sheathing (green facades, ground cover - lawns) and to generate spaces of various heights (hedges, shrubs, trees).

Topics:

  • Basics of using plants
  • Plant typologies
  • Function and impact of spaces
  • Site-specificity
  • Design principles
  • Planting plan and representation
  • Execution
