Landscape Architecture

In order to study about Landscape architecture, we need to gain certain knowledge about the terms used in it.

Landscape:- Something which is natural, beautiful, which surrounds us. In short we can say that Landscape is something which we appreciate.

Design:- It is defined as organisation of few components in an orderly manner.

Landscape Architecture:- It is not only organisation of components but creating relationship between the building and surrouding. Functions of a space can be different so we need to modify and organize natural and man-made components to create functional spaces.

  • Due to global warming, heat content has raised to a large extent and so we have to depend on the mechanical devices to lower the heat.
