What you will learn

Early in this course you'll explore landscape histories; plants for urban and natural systems as well as learn to design climate responsive landscapes. You'll then gain an understanding of research strategies in design and sustainable urban design, including how Indigenous culture in Australia influences landscape architectural and architectural design.

Later in your degree you'll engage in studies involving planning and management of special design projects and contribute to interdisciplinary teams of built environment professionals. Throughout your course, you'll engage in hands-on intensive studio units that explore the concept of 'play' in urban design spaces and involve real-world industry-directed design briefs that investigate environmental change and social justice concerns.

In your final semester you will complete a thesis project that will represent a proposed intervention in the real world that could create a significant contribution to the field of landscape architecture.

Flexible delivery

The course is offered with delivery modes designed to fit with your busy lifestyle with units taught through either fully online mode or online with a face-to-face component that provide immersive experiences in the classroom and outside in relevant landscape environments.
