Landscape Architecture is one of the professions responsible for the design of the built environment. It is an expression of our cultural and natural heritage and provides a dialogue at the interface between them. Landscape Architecture using both reason and imagination, is always conceived and realised in the context of material, environmental, social, cultural and historical parameters.

Course programme

Course Content Year 1

Design work focuses on spatial concepts, exploration, function, planning and representation. You will also study drawing, IT, art and design, visual culture, physical geography, architectural and landscape history and landscape construction.

Year 2

Design work becomes more focused and complex. Courses in urban design and reclamation are taken. Studio work is supported by contextual and technical courses covering aspects of detailed design, built environment theory, living systems and temporal aspects.

Design work complexity increases and focuses on urban regeneration. You will have an opportunity to take an elective offered from a suite of courses offered by Landscape Architecture, ESALA (Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture) or from the rest of the University of Edinburgh.

Each partner has different perspectives on Landscape Architecture as a profession, subject and design medium.
