Landscape Architecture

This Landscape Institute accredited BA Hons Landscape Architecture programme is the first exciting step in a professional career in landscape architecture. It is the only BA Hons Landscape Architecture programme in London. Students enjoy close relationships with leading landscape architecture practices and proximity to World-famous parks, buildings, gardens. On the programme, students explore a diverse range of approaches to the design of landscapes, such as green roofs, living walls, courtyards, public spaces, parks, squares, waterfronts, urban masterplans and regional strategies. The programme centres on the design studio where students are introduced to innovative approaches in landscape architecture and encouraged to develop design speculations for future landscapes and cities. Visits to London’s art galleries (such as Tate Modern, ICA), museums (such as British Museum) and important landscapes (such as Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Kew Gardens, Royal Park Greenwich) are part of the degree. Students are encouraged to attend field-study courses abroad (recently to New York and Istanbul) which inform their design projects. The design studio is supported by studies in the history and theory of landscape, urban ecology, conservation, horticulture, construction, visual representation, drawing skills and digital communication. Weekly international lectures are hosted in the department, recently including James Corner (Field Operations), Marti Franch (EMF), Martin Rein-Cano (Topotek 1) and Kathryn Gustafson (GP+B). Details of international events, open lectures and examples of student portfolios can be found on the collective blog written by the landscape architecture and urbanism staff and students, The Landscape ( The programme is based in the Department of Architecture and Landscape in a new state of the art building designed.
