Landscape Architecture Design Simulation
The Master of Landscape Architecture program at the ETH Zurich is to prepare architecture and landscape architecture Swiss and international graduates to master Landscape Architecture and landscape infrastructure design & tools.

The Chair of Professor Girot combines both traditional site planning and design, as well as state of the art visualization & modeling tools in the highest level of Swiss technology. The 12 month program courses are held in English. We teach topology to architects, engineers, designers and landscape architects. Looking for information about research at our chair? www.girot.arch.ethz.ch/masla

Footprints: Urban Landscapes | Thomas Marek | Landscape Architecture Design Simulation | Scoop.it


Last week I started my new project "Urban Landscapes", capturing the the symbioses of people, architecture, street life and nature in a city. My main subject for the next weeks will be Hamburg followed by Seattle in the fall / winter. I love to roam the streets with my camera and explore the city in new ways. I usually go for long walks, carrying 2 bodies with a 28mm and a 50mm lens. Sometimes a 35mm. My favorite camera right now is the Fuji X-Pro 1. It's light, has remarkable image quality and is very unobtrusive for shooting on the streets.

3 Gigabits Of Genetic Code

3 Gigabits Of Genetic Code | Landscape Architecture Design Simulation | Scoop.it
As awe-inspiring as it is, the reality is that the complexity of fetal development reduces to 3 gigabits of genetic code. We are hardware made from software, code that is elegantly written.

"A city is not a tree" by Christopher Alexander (pdf)

"At a time of increasing concern over the adequacy of design methods, "A City is not a Tree" broke open and reoriented the debate. It also represented a fundamental change in Christopher Alexander's thinking. While retaining the mathematical foundation underlying his Notes on the Synthesis of Form, "A City is not a Tree" takes it in a very different direction. Where the one seeks a crystalline logic to arrive at the notion of "fitness" between form and programme, the other points to a fundamental ambiguity and overlap in the relation of form to its uses. The one is an extreme extension of Modernist rationalism, the other a reaction against it." Charles Jencks and Karl Kropf

 

"The tree of my title is not a green tree with leaves. It is the name of an abstract structure. I shall contrast it with another, more complex abstract structure called a semi-lattice. The city is a semi-lattice, but it is not a tree. In order to relate these abstract structures to the nature of the city, I must first make a simple distinction..." Christopher Alexander (1965)

Great, thanks for sharing the pdf with us - the texts of Christopher Alexander are always very inspiring!

Sure, 3D printing is fun and cute. And products like the Makerbot and Form 1 will most certainly disrupt manufacturing, even if it's only on a small scale. But the possibilities of 3D printing stretch far beyond DIY at-home projects.
