Introduction to Guide (Ebook – Landscape Guide)

The HDB Landscape Guide was conceived to provide broad coverage on the important HDB design principles and requirements for consultants to note during the design process. Following the public housing design guide for landscape published in 2005, this new manual provides the necessary updates to keep in step with the current focus and needs. It aims to offer a comprehensive understanding of HDB landscapes as well as design factors to consider across three sections.
The first section describes the history of HDB landscape design, as well as the current design practice. It outlines key landscape design principles based on the values of community, environment and aesthetics, setting the tone for the rest of the book. The second section gives an overview of the types of landscape spaces in HDB developments, and illustrates various hard- and softscape considerations for each type of space. As equally important as new developments, considerations for the upgrading of mature estates are also described. In the last section, topics of landscape facilities and structures, softscape design, and designing with mature trees are elaborated in detail. Relatively new concepts of water-sensitive urban design, rooftop greenery and vertical greenery are also described. ‘Good practices’ have been highlighted for consultants’ reference, and design process flowcharts, which suggest ways the designer can approach a topic, are included.
This book was written to serve as a helpful guide and inspiration for designers, not only for landscaping of HDB projects but beyond.

Landscape design has been and will continue to be an integral and significant component of public housing development. This is especially so as HDB has to build in an increasingly dense environment. Greenery and well landscaped public spaces give us visual respite, cool the urbanscape and provide great recreational spaces for our residents and the community.
More than 50 years ago, HDB landscaping began as simple greening with the provision of basic amenities. However, with rising expectations of residents, the emphasis on creating a more liveable environment and a greater focus on sustainability, new standards for landscape design have been established in HDB estates. A greater variety of facilities and structures such as playgrounds, community gardens and gathering places have been included to cater to residents needs. At the same time, softscape design or planting has taken on a vital role in not only providing shade, but enhancing the quality of space. New concepts such as water-sensitive urban design, skyrise greenery and biodiversity are now part of landscape plans.
Through good design, public landscape areas contribute to the creation of endearing homes for residents and provide conducive spaces to foster community ties, making living in an HDB estate an enjoyable experience. Given the importance of landscape design, this HDB Landscape Guide has been compiled to guide architects and landscape architects in the design of both the hard and soft landscapes. The guide is built upon HDB’s past experiences and provides useful tips to the designer. I hope that this guide will serve as useful reference and help to raise the quality of landscape design in HDB developments. And, given the massive scale of HDB developments, we can contribute to the greening of Singapore.

Perspective Drawing

Perspective Drawing

Rays of light travel from the object, through the picture plane, and to the viewer’s eye. This is the basis for graphical perspective.

Linear perspective always works by representing the light that passes from a scene through an imaginary rectangle (realized as the plane of the painting), to the viewer’s eye, as if a viewer were looking through a window and painting what is seen directly onto the windowpane. If viewed from the same spot as the windowpane was painted, the painted image would be identical to what was seen through the unpainted window. Each painted object in the scene is thus a flat, scaled down version of the object on the other side of the window.[1] Because each portion of the painted object lies on the straight line from the viewer’s eye to the equivalent portion of the real object it represents, the viewer sees no difference (sans depth perception) between the painted scene on the windowpane and the view of the real scene. All perspective drawings assume the viewer is a certain distance away from the drawing. Objects are scaled relative to that viewer. An object is often not scaled evenly: a circle often appears as an ellipse and a square can appear as a trapezoid. This distortion is referred to as foreshortening.

Perspective drawings have a horizon line, which is often implied. This line, directly opposite the viewer’s eye, represents objects infinitely far away. They have shrunk, in the distance, to the infinitesimal thickness of a line. It is analogous to (and named after) the Earth’s horizon.

Any perspective representation of a scene that includes parallel lines has one or more vanishing points in a perspective drawing. A one-point perspective drawing means that the drawing has a single vanishing point, usually (though not necessarily) directly opposite the viewer’s eye and usually (though not necessarily) on the horizon line. All lines parallel with the viewer’s line of sight recede to the horizon towards this vanishing point. This is the standard “receding railroad tracks” phenomenon. A two-point drawing would have lines parallel to two different angles. Any number of vanishing points are possible in a drawing, one for each set of parallel lines that are at an angle relative to the plane of the drawing.

Perspectives consisting of many parallel lines are observed most often when drawing architecture (architecture frequently uses lines parallel to the x, y, and z axes). Because it is rare to have a scene consisting solely of lines parallel to the three Cartesian axes (x, y, and z), it is rare to see perspectives in practice with only one, two, or three vanishing points; even a simple house frequently has a peaked roof which results in a minimum of six sets of parallel lines, in turn corresponding to up to six vanishing points.

In contrast, natural scenes often do not have any sets of parallel lines and thus no vanishing points.

Early history of perspective drawing

The earliest art paintings and drawings typically sized many objects and characters hierarchically according to their spiritual or thematic importance, not their distance from the viewer, and did not use foreshortening. The most important figures are often shown as the highest in a composition, also from hieratic motives, leading to the so-called “vertical perspective”, common in the art of Ancient Egypt, where a group of “nearer” figures are shown below the larger figure or figures. The only method to indicate the relative position of elements in the composition was by overlapping, of which much use is made in works like the Parthenon Marbles.

Abstract. The climate change has caused the uncertainties in human life, which impacts the food security. The presence of vegetation in Pekarangan can be proposed to mitigate global climate change impacts by CO2 sequestration and at the same time to promote the availability of food for the community. Pekarangan is one of the small landscape agroforestry system that have functions in terms of economic, social, and ecological. Management of landscape services in pekarangan will reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, which mean create a low carbon society (LCS) that support the food security. The aims of this research is to calculate carbon stock and biodiversity in pekarangan, and to compare carbon stock and biodiversity on three levels of Cisadane Watershed. Four groups of Pekarangan defined on a purposive random sampling. Those four groups are G1 (Pekarangan size less than 120 m2 and doesn’t have other agricultural land (no other agricultural land – OAL), G2 (<120 m2 with OAL < 1000 m2), G3 (120-400 m2 with no OAL) and G4 (120-400 m2 with OAL < 1000 m2). Allometric models were developed to estimate aboveground biomass of vegetation, and an inventory was conducted in 48 pekarangan. Shannon Weiner Index (H’) and Margalef Index (Dm) are used  to evaluate biodiversity, averaged 2,84 and 5,10 (G1); 2,55 and 4,27 (G2); 2,56 and 4,52 (G3); 2,68 and 4,84 (G4), while carbon stock averaged 33,20 Mg Carbon/ha (G1); 29,97 Mg/ha (G2); 59,18 Mg/ha (G3); and 40,98 Mg/ha (G4). There is no relationship between biodiversity with carbon stock on pekarangan (R2 = 0,02), or tree’s biodiversity with carbon stock (R2 = 0,23). High resolution satellite imagery can be used to extrapolate carbon stock and plants biodiversity of Pekarangan at watershed level.

Keywords: biodiversity, carbon stock, low carbon landscapes, watershed management
