Abstract

University students deserve proper outdoor learning centers to accelerate their academic development. However, dealing with dynamic physical outdoor elements, especially the existing tree species, is challenging in the design phase. Failing to understand their character and conditions will lead to design failures that involve losses of ecosystem benefits and ultimately have a negative impact on students' academic development. This research proposes composite maps by analyzing qualitative and quantitative data from physical attributes. The proposed overlayed composite maps present the association of comfort, movement, aesthetic, and social relation criteria for the outdoor student learning centres.
