Design Analysis - Contextual Architecture with Landscape Methods

This paper describes the contextual analysis of architecture with landscape methods as both design and teaching methodology. The methodology applies our understanding of research as design and design as research, and involves the evaluation of landscape architecture-based approaches to built examples in a region famous for its constructed landscapes – The Netherlands. In a series of design courses the authors have been teaching in Delft and Rotterdam from 2009 to 2012 analytical methods were developed through a combination of one-to-one contextual readings of built architectural projects.
