Abstract

This short design exercise was conducted at Tanjung Piai National Park, Serkat, Johor. First year and second year students whom were studying Landscape Ecology, SBEL1662, were assigned to design a resort to be located in an ecosystem. A set of 6 ecosystems where assigned to them including mangrove forest, hill forest in an island, oil palm plantation, rubber plantation, orchard and stream of a rain forest. In a group of four to five, students were assigned to develop a cross-section of their design scheme. The purpose of this exercise to gauge student's ecological knowledge on the design of a resort integrating it with aboitic and biotic factors of the ecosystem. The groups were given 45 minutes to prepare the cross-sectional design. The students are from Department of Landscape Architecture, Faculty of Built Environment, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia whom are studying in Semester 2 Session 2011/2012. Results: 1. Students comprehend well how to fit structures including buildings and bridge with the abiotic and biotic factors of the natural or modified ecosystems--view sectional drawings; 2. Students produce a quick design scheme through discussion and free-hand drawings--view sectional drawings; and 3. Students understand relationship of plant and animals with the abiotic factors such as temperature, water and sunlight--view sectional drawings. Conclusion: This exercise permits the instructor to gauge student's knowledge on ecosystem and design skill in planning man-made structures in the natural or modified ecosystem.
