dc.description.abstractPhotomontage has evolved from traditional collages to highly photorealistic simulations - the currently preferred style of landscape visual communication. These photorealistic graphics are popular, owing to their ease of interpretation, but limit discourse possibilities and fail to reveal the ideation process. On the other hand, traditional collage is credited with projecting the design process and promoting intelligent discourse. This study helped investigate the efficiencies of using traditional collage representation within current praxis. Literature review focused on the trajectory of landscape architecture graphics brought an understanding to why impressionist, realistic graphics are being used. A case-study analyzes of fifteen graphic representations by landscape architecture practices and the results of a questionnaire that tested for recognition of various graphic styles was used to consolidate information that led to the determination that collage techniques are superior and can be revived to be utilized effectively in praxis.en_US
