Bachelor of Landscape Architectural Design

RMIT University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00122A

Landscape architecture responds to diverse issues posed by the contemporary world ranging in scale and scope from the garden to the territory, the infrastructural to ecological, through the act of design. In this course students are exposed to a range of unique design techniques, associated tools and technologies to design landscapes that examine and propose new forms between economics, ecology and society. In the four streams of the course - Design, Communications, Environments and Theoretical Frameworks - students learn a set of specialised ideas and skills. In the Design stream students undertake design projects learning specific design techniques to conceptualise and execute design ideas. In Communications students learn how to analyse and represent landscape in 2D and 3D. In Environments skills in mapping, construction methods and fabrication are developed. The Theoretical Frameworks stream interrogates history and theory through critical analysis and drawing.
