Landscape Architecture

Landscape Architecture focuses on knowledge acquisition, strategy development and design exploration of landscape compositions and systems in the built environment. Through fundamental design-oriented research and practical projects, scholars in landscape architecture explore the potential of spatial, temporal and material dimensions of landscape – including ecological, social and technical aspects – advancing future-oriented action and thinking on the development of urban landscapes through different scales. The ability to explore and work with the urban landscape as a palimpsest, spatial-visual structure, scale-continuum, and as social and natural processes makes landscape architecture indispensable to current spatial challenges. The research elaborates on landscape design foundations, landscape architecture compositions and urban landscapes. Projects focus on: green-blue landscape infrastructures, metropolitan parks and gardens, polder landscapes, urban landscape characterisation, architecture and landscape, landscape-based urban development, estate landscapes.
