ABSTRACT In landscape architecture profession using and designing equipment elements in a systematic way is as important as creating the space at least. There are some design criteria for equipment elements. When these are used in an accurate and convenient way favorable designs that improve life quality, meet user needs are formed. Seating equipments are the most common used equipment types. Therefore for landscape architecture students learning seating equipment design is fundamental. In this context in this study seating equipment models that were produced in Equipment Design course which
aims to teach designing ergonomic and unique equipments in landscape architecture curriculum are evaluated. To this end “Equipment Design” course in the third term of Karadeniz Technical University, Landscape Architecture Department curriculum is discussed. This course which is selective aims to teach students how equipment-space compatibility can be achieved and how equipments can be dealt with in design process in terms of functional and aesthetic aspects. The main goal of this course is to teach how spatial identity can be established by integrating equipment elements with the space, with each other and with the activity type that they serve. In this study the seating equipments designed and produced by students in context of this course conducted in year 2017, were analyzed in terms of size, shape and creativity solutions. The students were requested to design a seating equipment and produce a model of it with 1/20 scale. Models made by students were analyzed in size, shape and creativity. As a result it was revealed that students can design seating equipments that are suitable for size and function, differ in size and creative in shape.
