Architecture, Planning and Landscape (Design)

The course focuses on the interface between planning, landscape and architectural design in the creation of sustainable and successful places. This flexible and diverse course deals with these complex aspects in a creative and innovative way, with much of what students learn applicable worldwide. Architecture, planning and landscape present a complex inter-relationship between people, buildings, landscape and the environment. The course focuses on understanding the role of architectural design in the built environment. This includes the need to relate buildings, and the spaces between them, to human needs.
