3D and planar design software, as an indispensable aiding tool for the design industry, is widely used in architectural and landscape designs. This paper centers on the CAD-based study of comparatively important issues existing in freeway landscape designs - landscape “points” (entrances, exits and architectural elements), “lines” (roadside green belts) and “planes” (protecting slopes and rock walls) - in association with actual cases, and brings forward some exercisable design methods and philosophies.
