Landscape Architecture and Garden Design
Postgraduate design courses at Writtle University College propose a new emphasis and direction for the Masters' degrees based on an interdisciplinary platform of knowledge and understanding. The disciplines of Landscape Architecture and Garden Design are a 'project' in comprehending, interpreting and developing conceptual frameworks of meaning, design relationships, open ecological and social systems and the environment in garden and landscape design thinking and practice.
The postgraduate design programme follows related design and theory project sequences leading to a grounded and innovative way to comprehend and find meaning in the places we live and work. Landscape Architecture and Garden Design education are presented in a dynamic theory to practice based approach.
Graduates will gain the intellectual, communication and technical skills and tools in a profession that must understand and design gardens and landscapes through social, cultural, ecological and economic implications of sites, communities and regions. Graduates will organise, plan and design spatial relationships and environments in collaborative, productive and creative interdisciplinary ways. Landscape Architects, Garden Designers and Environmental Designers should expect to positively influence a more sustainable, aesthetic, socially and environmentally conscious living condition.
