Landscape Architecture Theory, Methodology & Practice

The course contains lectures, literature seminars with oral presentation and / or written reflections on studied literature, as well as assignments that are performed both individually and in groups.

The assignments can, for example, consist of case studies where students analyze a completed project based on studied theories and discuss and suggest methods for a hypothetical case study of the project.

The course literature deals with important theories in landscape architecture from historical texts to contemporary discourses.

Lectures given within the framework of the course are intended to introduce theories and methods used in landscape architecture.

Of particular importance is critical thinking and the use of graphic representations such as sketches, photographs, diagrams, drawings, etc. as a complement to the written and spoken word.
