The basic design course, a 1st
semester curriculum course at the Department of Landscape Architecture, forms
the basis of design education as a part of landscape architecture
education. The landscape design course, provided as part of the 2nd
semester curriculum, is a continuation of the basic design course and allows
basic design concepts to be transferred to landscape design. Similarly, courses
for other semesters are also developed based on the knowledge and acquisitions
attained through the basic design course. This article is based on the
educational experiences that have been obtained in the basic design course
administered at the Department of Landscape Architecture in the Faculty of
Agriculture, Ankara University, between 2005 and 2010. The content and
objectives of the basic design course, and the educational methods and the
process used in the course are described; the challenges and problems faced
with respect to the theory and practice of the course are presented.
Additionally, instructions for education related to basic design are discussed,
based on experience.
