This book is aimed at students and developing practitioners of landscape architecture who seek practical and inspirational direction in the use of traditional and digital representational techniques. It illustrates their diverse range and appropriateness to the different parts of a creative design process as projects progress from inception to completion. It presents a broad spectrum of recent student developmental work balanced with examples from leading practitioners from around the world, chosen to inspire and aim for. The book provides a key reference to help understand not only how and where a range of visual communication skills are needed to inform a design process, but will also reveal why they are essential to becoming a successful landscape architect. It illustrates how particular representational techniques can be sensitively applied in different contexts appropriate to a diverse range of design challenges. The book encourages students to engage in a questioning approach to their studies in order to better understand the 'fit for purpose' aspect of various representational technique exercises encountered during a landscape architecture course. The structure of the book simply follows the narrative of a design sequence, which helps embed representational techniques as an integral part of a creative design process. Chapters are highly visual and focus on images with supporting text and captions. The chosen illustrations reveal the constructive relationship and balance needed between traditional hand drawings and digital media. Numerous tips and exercises will help reinforce students' understanding of contemporary techniques and their sensitive application, encouraging experimentation and acquisition of the exciting broad palette of representational techniques available to today's landscape architects.
