Abstract. The innovative and integrative use of digital CNC technologies in the
field of landscape architecture is, for the most part, quite new when compared
with the field of architecture. The following paper focuses on new techniques
for visualizing work processes and developments for large-scale landscape
designs. The integration of these processes within a teaching environment stands
at the forefront. In this context, the use of programmed tools and the immediate
translation of preliminary design ideas to models using the Mini Mill in the
studio allow students to investigate and test new approaches. Next steps will be
explored through the use of parametric design tools.
