Elmich conducted a three-month experiential learning program for a group of students undertaking the Diploma in Design (Interior & Landscape) at the BCA Academy. The program was designed to invoke and stimulate their sensory perceptions and adopted a holistic approach in teaching how nature can be reintegrated into our urban spaces.

The students were introduced to urban design concepts such as Skyrise Greenery (green roofs and green walls) and stormwater management through a methodical learning program. This included site visits and a series of lectures, as well as model making (mock ups and Building Information Modeling) to further reinforce their visual and cognitive knowledge. The structured program also helped students understand how these concepts can be applied in real life.
