Nationally known Landscape Architect and SketchUp expert Daniel Tal will be leading a workshop at Cornell University focused on SketchUp applications for landscape architects, including terrain modeling, site grading and rendering. This two-day workshop will included twelve hours of classroom time, and will be open to university students and design professionals.
Thursday & Friday Evening Open Lectures
Thursday November 3rd 5:30-6:30 / Reception, 6:30-7:30
Cornell University, Kennedy Hall, Room 461
Trends in Technology and Software in Contemporary Landscape Architecture by Daniel Tal.
In this lecture, which will be open to everyone, as ASLA Magazine’s Technology Editor-at-large, Daniel will discuss trends in utilization of technology such as drones, 3D printing and the use of visualization software in both academia and professional practice.
Friday, November 4th 6:00-7:00 / Reception, 7:00-7:45
Cornell University, Warren Hall, Room 151
Lecture by Chad Danos, FASLA, ASLA National Immediate Past President
The presentation will establish a framework of how landscape has an influence on each of us through culture, philosophy, practice, and mission. An exploration of these four motives will reveal the interconnection of people and place and what that means for us as landscape architects. It will challenge us to not only ask the tough questions, but to be leaders within each of our communities and the role that ASLA can play at various stages of our career.
**BOTH LECTURES ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC**
Who should attend?
The workshop is for higher education students in landscape architecture, landscape designers, design-build landscape designers, architects, landscape architecture professionals and any other landscape professional looking to develop a deeper understanding of the tools in SketchUp that can be used to study and represent landscape interventions.
What is SketchUp?
SketchUp is a 3D modeling program for applications including landscape design and architecture. The program is easy to use and a powerful tool for visualizing landscape design to clients, colleagues, and field staff. There is an online Open source repository of free-of-charge model assemblies (e.g., landscape elements, windows, doors, etc.), 3D Warehouse - to which users may contribute models. The program includes drawing layout functionality, allows surface rendering in variable "styles", supports third-party "plug-in" programs, and enables placement of its models within Google Earth. Most important, SketchUp allows for the development of simple to complex terrain and grading models which Daniel will review in detail.
Landscape Architects have the opportunity to earn 12 CE (non HSW CEU, NYS 12 allowed per three-year renewal period) credits by attending the full 2-day workshops (6 hours of instruction, per day).
