Urban Landscape Planning and Design (Youngmin Kim)
Owing to technological improvement of productivity, ironically, mankind was able to separated himself from nature, the traditional base for production. The clear boundary between the city and nature has been blurred with rapid growth of urban population. In contemporary urbanization, landscape became the new media to rethink ambiguous edges of the city. Studio Mode.L. aims to deal with diverse types of urban landscape through planning and design. We try to expand the field of landscape architecture in two directions. Externally we experiment interdisciplinary approaches on landscape integrating methods of architecture, urban planning, engineering, computer science, sociology as well as landscape architecture. Internally, we try to discover new theoretical lens to reconstruct conventional framework and methodology of landscape architecture.
