About this study area
Landscape Architecture is a unique discipline that acts as a bridge between the arts and sciences, design and the environment, and engages in core ecological, cultural and social issues in both urban and rural societies.
At the Melbourne School of Design, our curriculum is underpinned by a strong grounding in design, ecology and urbanism. These strengths are paralleled by a comprehensive history and theory stream encompassing contemporary landscape architecture, architecture and urban design theory, and cross cultural issues, including indigenous perspective for sustainable societies.
Our studios develop strong interdisciplinary understanding, excellent communication skills, critical thinking and the ability to use resources, materials and technologies to develop responsible and ecologically sound and novel design solutions.
