Welcome to Outdoor Design. The goal of this class is to help you understand the design principles for outdoor design and how to apply them in real life. In this course, you’ll learn about how to create a space that’s tailored to your needs and tastes by understanding the different elements of outdoor design and how they can be used individually or together. We’ll cover site location, natural elements like sunlight and water, as well as man-made materials like furniture or plants.
Site and Sun
The sun is the most important factor in outdoor design. The time of day and season of the year, as well as its location in relation to your site, will affect how much sunlight you get on any given day. The position of the sun can be used to create shade, heat and light–and it’s up to you how you want to use them!
Color is a powerful tool for creating a mood and theme, as well as adding contrast or unity. When you’re designing your environment, you can use color to create focal points, establish balance, and make sure everything looks good together.
In the kitchen you might want to use bright colors like red or yellow so everyone knows what they’re doing when they make food. You can also use these colors on plates and cups so that guests know which ones belong to them when they sit down at the table! In bedrooms, blue is often associated with sleepiness because it’s associated with water (which makes us sleepy). If your child has trouble falling asleep at night then try painting their room blue instead of green or orange!
Plant material is a key element of the landscape. It can be used to create a naturalistic or formal look, an exotic look, or an informal one.
Landscape architecture is the art and science of planning, designing, and caring for outdoor space. Landscape architects are responsible for the design and maintenance of parks, gardens, and other open spaces that are used for recreation or as a natural setting for buildings.
Landscape architects have always been involved in urban design projects such as streetscapes and public squares. But today they’re also working on large-scale projects like new towns or even entire cities (think Masdar City).
Designing the World Around You
When you’re designing the world around you, there are certain things that need to be taken into consideration. You have to think about what kind of environment your space will be in and how it will affect those who use it. For example, if there is too much heat or cold in a certain area it can cause health problems for those working there. Also if there aren’t enough windows or lighting fixtures then people may feel like they are working in darkness all day long which isn’t good either!
The world is a beautiful place and the best way to experience it is by getting outside. Whether you’re looking for inspiration or just want some tips on how to make your own yard more enjoyable, we hope this article was helpful!
