Landscape Architecture

This programme is growing logically out of the School's long-standing preoccupation with material, context, creative interventions and regeneration, both locally and internationally; it expands material and contextual interests into the natural and urban landscape, actively seeking to explore the possibilities inherent in the temporal design opportunities that landscape architecture encompasses; the programme is designed to develop intellectual and practical professional tools for landscape architects, and through project-based studies, search for new solutions to the increasing complexity of our environment.
