Abstract: This paper discusses landscape construction teaching methods and a research project at the TU-Berlin focusing on change to built landscapes through time. The research is based on the hypothesis that it is possible to optimise design, detailing, construction and maintenance techniques by monitoring and evaluating projects at regular intervals after completion. The processes of change highlight deficiencies in detailing, construction and maintenance. The research project is developing a non-destructive monitoring method to "read" these traces of time and pinpoint frequently occurring points of weakness. A low-threshold anticipatory method will then be developed for use during the design and detailing project phase to optimise future landscape projects in terms of their durability and resilience. The construction teaching methods evolving from this research involve the students in on site analysis and evaluations of built elements. Students examine the root causes of change and reflect on interrelations between design, building materials, technical implementation, maintenance and the processes of context-related change over time. These learning techniques enable integrative learning within the fields of landscape design, urbanism, sociology of space, climatology, construction and maintenance.
