Some features of this site may not work without it. This investigation is a case study of landscape architectural design education in South Africa. Current forms of landscape architectural education are influenced by Global North perspectives and often, if not consciously, privilege particular ways of meaningmaking, and exclude or marginalise experiences or ways of knowing that are different. The aim of this research is to develop a landscape architectural pedagogy for diversity that fosters multiple perspectives and valorises resources that students bring to their learning environment, in order that students may both access and challenge the dominant landscape educational discourse.
In grappling with these concerns, this research finds resonance with a multimodal social semiotic approach.
Instead of labelling students as in competent or under prepared, a multimodal social semiotic approach emphasises the interest, agency and resourcefulness of the student as meaning-maker.
The research thus reframes landscape architectural design processes through a multimodal social semiotic lens, providing new insights and clarity to these processes. The approach foregrounds interpersonal and social meanings of space and, to some extent, challenges traditional landscape architectural design practices that tend to value compositional and conceptual meanings. The methodology centers around a spatial model project in the second half of a first-year landscape architectural design studio subject.
The data includes students' texts and their presentations. The research develops a methodological framework that outlines a range of ideational, interpersonal and textual meaningpotentials of landscape spatial and visual texts and applies this framework to the analysis of students' 2D and 3D texts. Through careful analysis of students' design trajectories, this research uncovers the types of resources students draw on, including semiotic, experiential, social, interactive and pedagogical resources.
The analysis shows that students' transformation of resources results in innovative spatial designs, and expands on what and how landscape spaces can mean. This pedagogical approach begins to address past educational imbalances and inequalities, and ensures that diverse, Global South perspectives contribute to the production of knowledge. Price, C.

The motto T-shirt with its stereotypical motifs — a list of words in Swahili, which pretend to denote typical things of a country, an orientalist female figure, African variations of common pop-cultural images — can be a globally produced souvenir or a t-shirt which is sold on online platforms as well as on the streets of shopping promenades. The T-shirt is an emblematic piece of clothing, which expresses a certain attitude towards life or even a sense of belonging, of being in a place. As my research object, it will be embedded as a material object in the context of diverse, online, and offline semiotic landscapes.

Abstract: As a brand-new research field of sociolinguistics, the study of linguistic landscape interprets the relationship between language and space by means of analyzing the variety of linguistic signs in public space such as public road signs, advertising billboards, street names, place names, commercial shop signs, and public signs on government buildings, which in general can be divided into top-down signs and bottom-up signs and which are equipped with informative function and symbolic function.
Semiotics is an investigation into how meaning is created and how meaning is communicated. Its origins lie in the academic study of how signs and symbols visual and linguistic create meaning.
The name semiotic landscape constitutes an integral part of the linguistic landscape, comprising proper nouns and extralinguistic signs referring to, or accompanying names in name plates, signage in public spaces, and on various other surfaces. The name semiotic landscape is a component, an aspect, and a consequence of language policy and name policy. The way minority proper nouns can be displayed in public spaces is regulated by laws approved by the state. Some areas such as personal name plates, business cards, and names of private institutions are unregulated, and the forms of proper nouns can be chosen freely. This paper seeks to answer the following questions: to what extent are minority language rights implemented in visual name use in settlements populated by Slovakia Hungarians, whether Hungarian name usage is spreading, and to what extent do signage and name plates contain proper nouns in a Hungarian form. In bilingual societies, proper nouns and other signs in the minority language increase the prestige of the minority language and have the function of marking ethnic identity. In this paper, the proper noun semiotic, place name semiotic, and institution name semiotic landscapes are investigated for various proper noun types in Slovakia Hungarian settlements.
No Yes. This research aims to study the development of the landscape of contemporary museums, their conceptual classification, and their contextual implementation from the midth century up to the present. It will highlight cases where indoor spaces are visually expanded to outdoor spaces, where both spaces are totally separated, with landscapes that carry various functions, and with landscapes with distinctive layouts.
