All staff is ambitious and creative design practitioners and researchers. Our London location, local and European networks and international perspective provide the focus for contemporary design projects that address immediate and long-term landscape solutions in cities and their regions. All design projects are developed as part of a personal portfolio that can be immediately useful in targeting employment. Design projects may include live competition briefs. Projects reflect critical challenges and potentials of contemporary landscape practice and the research and practice expertise of the teaching team, including water, places and people; community consultation in the public realm; time, transformation and experience; urbanism and professional practice. The modules may involve client contact, model making, mapping, and drawing and digital media workshops. Critical thinking and expression is supported by the Landscape and Urbanism Theory module. There is special commitment to processes of transformation and their communication, with an emphasis on learning through making in the Faculty's 3D workshop and on hand-drawing techniques to complement digital media presentation.

Modules

This module introduces students to the research process and enables them to acquire a critical knowledge of the concept and theory of research methodologies and to develop a theoretical grounding and literacy in landscape design and urbanism, to support research-informed design practice. It provides students with practice of conducting research via secondary sources. The subject area is relevant for students of architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, and texts are drawn from each of these disciplines. Much of the synthesis of the material will rely on seminar discussion and independent study. The module focus is the bringing together of different disciplines with the ?landscape' as forum for discussion, rather than the ?built' form. Students participate in seminar presentations of reviews of critical texts to support the development of a landscape & urbanism manifesto annotated with photos, diagrams and drawings explaining key arguments, or an essay.
