Course Summary

This course is designed for anyone interested in becoming a professional landscape architect. You’ll engage with landscape, urbanism, agriculture and infrastructure projects in the UK and abroad. The core component of the MA Landscape Architecture course is based in the design studios of our new state-of-the-art building in Stockwell Street. Students work with academics and practitioners to develop projects and review designs. You'll be pushed to develop innovative and distinct approaches to landscape architecture, culminating in a final design project and thesis. Teaching is informed by technical and theoretical seminars, with guest lectures from international artists, designers and academics. The course will open up career paths in landscape architecture, planning, and urban design. Graduates of the MA Landscape Architecture have gone on to lead design projects including the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the Eden Project.

Landscape Architecture has been taught at University of Greenwich since 1965 so many graduates find employment through the expansive alumni network in London, across the UK and overseas. Some Landscape Architecture graduates work in architecture, landscape architecture or urban design practices. Other graduates have joined government design and planning offices to develop urban strategies and policy. Some graduates have also followed further studies through doctorate research.

Modules

Landscape Representation is a module that introduces advanced and professional techniques to develop, analyse and represent landscape. It is taught within context of the professional and theoretical techniques that are significant to landscape architecture and working with new technologies. Techniques of drawing, illustration, model making, moving image and interactive media are fundamental to developing design proposals, and these techniques are inextricably linked to how the projects are represented; a combination of these techniques are introduced in this course to encourage cross-media experimentation, and to support the design studio projects.
