Track: Landscape Architecture

The Landscape Architecture track deals with making space inspired by nature, art and technology whereby the formal, material and cultural qualities of the site form the departure of the design. The track teaches students to transform and create compositions ‘through’ scale, time and as a process. Landscape Architecture is an independent design discipline strongly related to Urbanism and Architecture.

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.

Situated within the faculty of Architecture and the Built environment the Landscape Architecture track focuses on building sciences.
