What you will learn

The landscape architect connects in- and outdoor spaces: from architectonic ensembles, including gardens, urban spaces and large-scale urban, rural and infrastructural landscapes. Students learn to see landscape as a contextual underlay for understanding, ordering and acting in spatial transformations. The emphasis lies on the historical continuity of landscape as a process.
