About

Landscape Architecture, University of Greenwich programme is the first step in a professional career in Landscape Architecture. Students explore a diverse range of approaches to the design of landscapes, such as green roofs, living walls, courtyards, public spaces, parks, squares, waterfronts, urban masterplans and regional strategies.

The programme centres on the design studio where students are introduced to leading approaches in Landscape Architecture and encouraged to experiment and develop design speculations for future landscapes and cities.

The design studio focuses on a series of projects which creatively explore landscape cultures, places, processes and typologies. Visits to art galleries, museums and important landscapes in London and the UK as well as lectures by leading international designers and artists are essential to the programme. Students attend field-study courses abroad which contextualize and inform their design projects.

The design studio is supported by studies in the history and theory of landscape, ecology, conservation, horticulture, construction, visual representation, drawing skills and digital communication. All students have access to the new workshops, digital studios, film and photography and facilities at Stockwell Street.

The aims of the programme are to:
  • Lead creative and imaginative landscape architects with a broad knowledge and range of confident, effective professional skills
  • Prepare students for future progression to the profession of landscape architecture and for year out practice and develop students' intellectual, practical and transferable key skills.
