summary The landscape design studio proposes to research synergies between teaching landscape architecture and using computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines as prototyping tools for students. The focus of the course is not to be proficient in CAAD-CAM technologies but to familiarize architecture students with landscape design and the problematic of large-scale topographical interventions and use these tools as verification instruments. Many prototyping tools are available to the students at the school and are easily accessible: a 3-axis mill, laser cutter, flatbed cutter and a 3D printer. Of all the CNC machines, the 3-axis mill allows for the best translation between idea and model in landscape modeling. Of interest to us is the continuous and more fluid exchange between paper/idea and a physical three-dimensional output, the ability to be able to re-shape continuously the model. The result is a series of models or evolutions, documenting the project idea as it has evolved from the initial concept to the final project.
