What is Landscape Architecture?

Landscape architects design spaces and places, varying from urban squares and city parks to regional landscapes and streetscapes. Landscape architects are experts at the intersection of design, culture, urbanization, environment, and sustainability. For example, they investigate the ecological and visual impacts of large alternative energy projects like wind farms or solar plantations in the landscape.

Study Contents in the Masters programme Landscape Architecture
