New Approaches to Spatial Planning and Design

Planning, Design, Applications

Edited By Murat Özyavuz

One of the main objectives of planning and design is the reflection of the works to the space. Therefore, the starting point of this book is to reveal the research conducted by different professions in the field of spatial planning and design. For this purpose, original researches on direct application and land were included. Planning and design studies need co-operation between professions in order to fulfill this philosophy. These activities are effective means of fulfilling the philosophy of sustainability. Planning and design is a tool to tell the story of a community, and how it’s past, present and future work together for a sustainable tomorrow. The design process in which the most appropriate spatial compositions are revealed by shaping the areas in the direction of planning decisions, develops in the continuation of the planning process. This book is for landscape architects and other planning and design professions. Theoretical foundations, theories, methods, and applications will be essential parts of this reference book. In addition, this book addresses several very different subjects of study; landscape management, biodiversity, landscape restoration, landscape design, urban design, urban planning and architectural design related to theory, practice and the results will be covered.

27 Use of Digital Technologies in Landscape Architecture: 3D Printers


Abstract: 3D printing may seem like a relatively new technology with its recent popularity and accessibility, but it has actually been used around since the 1980s. When fused deposition modelling (FDM) patent expired in 2009, the technology became available to both small and large companies in every industry to take advantage of and the landscaping architecture is no different. Models are an important form of visual representation. Traditional 2D graphics are a vital part of the design process; however, a tangible 3D model does not only clarify the details of the space but also ensures the client fully understands how the end product will look. This chapter is about the role of 3D models in landscape research and design. These landscape models, next to drawings and maps, are very important in the process of design research in landscape architecture. These models offer to landscape researchers and designers different perspectives for visual thinking and visual communication.

1 Introduction

Technological developments affect the production and economy, along with the life-styles of people, while leading certain professions to be erased from our lives, emergence of new professions, and adoption of new practices and approaches in the sector. One of these new technologies is the 3D printers. Notwithstanding that it is a quite new technology and that there are still many steps to be taken in terms of its advancement, it has already started to affect many areas. It...
