The programme’s first year focuses on the development of core knowledge on landscape architecture theory, techniques and repertoire and the active practicing of design skills on various levels of complexity and scale. The second year is almost entirely dedicated to the completion of the graduation project.

In the first semester of the second year students develop a study plan, a research proposal and a methodology paper for the graduation thesis. The Flowscape graduation studio is structured around projects within our research programme Landscape Systems and Compositions. A variety of so-called ‘graduation labs’ enable students to contribute to a specific research theme or topic.

An important objective during the graduation year is the development of a critical position in relation to the discipline, society and the built environment.
