Structure from Motion (image targets) – AlpTransit Construction Site Sigirino

The Landscape Visualization and Modeling Lab seeks to extend the boundaries of the design of contemporary Landscape Architecture through the application of technology to methodologies of design.

Through collaborations with practitioners and consultants worldwide, research into the visualization and modeling of the built landscape is changing the way that Landscape Architecture is taught.

Various software and hardware solutions are being combined to seek new thresholds in the perception and portrayal of the built environment. The research unit has developed partnerships with developers of software and hardware solutions, and with the disciplines of Landscape Planning and Urban Design. The combination of video, atmospheric rendering and milled modeling allow new techniques to be tested in the fields of representation and design.
