Jose Miguel Lameiras gave a presentation
Jose Miguel Lameiras, Lecturer in Landscape Architecture, Department of Science, University of Porto, Portugal, gave a presentation entitled “Digital Design in Landscape Architecture: Shaping the Surface of the Earth”. His research identified the main gaps in the existing digital modelling solutions, as well as the opportunities for new developments. It led to the proposal of an integrated of digital terrain modelling process, which introduced the TIN 2.0 surface, an evolution of the existing TIN surfaces, proposed a set of modelling and analysis tools and a component-based terrain modelling, allowing for a full integration into the Building Information Modelling systems. The proposed process was tested and validated through trials and case studies. Conclusions showed that it was possible to model a terrain surface based on digital terrain components, using the proposed design tools. The digital surfaces generated had a high level of precision and low level of abstraction in the representation of the projected form, allowing the modelling of the form to occur based either on three-dimensional lines, or through the use of free form design tools. All terrain modelling phases took place on a three-dimensional digital model.
The developments of this research are now being tested in state-of-the-art landscape design projects, such as the Asprela University Campus Parks in Porto, Portugal, and the URBiNAT project @ Porto (Grant Agreement 776783 – www.urbinat.eu).

Dominik Mohs gave a presentation
Dominik Mohs, former Assistant Researcher of Chair of Project Design, Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning, Faculty VI-Planning Building Environment,Technical University of Berlin, gave a presentation entitled “Experimental Qualities of Bodily Experience in Hybrid Landscapes”. In his PhD on perceptual configurations with body techniques in the architectural design process, an experimental-empirical research method emerges. This Method aims to transfer motion-based body-knowledge and spatial experience into the design process of architectural spaces. Connections between architectural spatial form and the quality of movements of improvisational dance are examined and noted under different spatial configurations. Special interest is placed on the dynamic qualities developed between for that purpose precisely designed architectural prototypes and dance improvisations. The investigation of the dynamics of architectural space and a phenomenological thinking about physical disposition and spatial atmospheres has meanwhile entered a wide field of architecture theory and practice and is today an attempt to investigate artistic design practices as neurocognitive knowledge and postdigital conditions. His special approach to research the phenomenology of architectonical spaces refers in a critical sense to this field of research which was initiated in 1893 by August Schmarsow and others on the basis of scientific approach to psychology as a kinesthetic perspective of bodily spatial experience. This kind of approach to architectonical space was tried to be transferred in an experimental configuration with landscape architecture students of TU Berlin in several seminars in which a design process unfolded between several experimental media-constellations (virtual and haptic modelling, 3d scan, immersive space experience in a CAVE and spatial construction) whose secondary and primary qualities informed and articulated the work of the students in the sense of Claude Lévi- Strauss concept of bricolage. The core concept is presented as a method of hybrid modelling. It is revealing the beauty of bodily experience in virtual landscapes and its potential for design processes.
Zhou Huaiyu Gave a presentation
ZHOU Huaiyu, PhD Candidate of Department of Landscape Architecture, School of Architecture, Tsinghua University gave a presentation entitled “IOT Monitoring Design in Landscape Architecture: Stormwater Management Process Visualization and Evaluation”. The presentation introduced the research on monitoring and post-evaluation of stormwater management of the project by applying Internet of Things technology in the field of landscape architecture. In the research, the courtyard Shengyinyuan on Tsinghua campus was selected as the object, and sensors were deployed to monitor the stormwater process for 15 months. The research carried out visual mapping of the data on the basis of collecting real-time big data, revealing the process and effect of site runover and stormwater management. The research results could provide experience for future design decisions, and were also conducive to the implementation of more efficient and accurate project maintenance management.
