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 

Most studies for Landscape Architecture are based on ecology and urbanism. They offer courses in the History of Landscape Architecture, Urban Design Theory, Land Reclamation and Horticulture and Plant Materials. Further specializations range from environmental law and infrastructural design of landscapes to the “Connection of Landscape Architecture to the Contemporary Art Discourse”. Many programmes for Landscape Architecture pride themselves on recognising and encouraging self-direction of study, which is why there are numerous electives for individual specialization.
