Webinar: Bringing It All Together! Developing Strategic & Creative Design Concepts (1 CEU)
May 20, 2021
This webinar presented by Susan Cohan, FAPLD will explore several ways to develop concepts that allow for maximum creativity, enhanced function and unique client presentations.
You have met with the client, collected site data, drawn up the base map and analyzed the functional direction of a project through site and functional analysis. You have established a budget. Working through the next phase – THE CONCEPTS – is often the most challenging yet creative part of the landscape design process. How do you marry the client’s wants and needs with the necessary technical aspects of a space and end up with a plan that satisfies those with an original, functional, and well-designed space? Design is problem solving within a given set of circumstances. The development of CONCEPTS for a landscape design plan begins with all of the information you have gathered (those circumstances) and ends with what you, as a designer, consider the best solutions. What plans, diagrams and other visuals do you choose to communicate your concept to the client? We will explore several ways to develop CONCEPTS that allow for maximum creativity, enhanced function and unique client presentations.
