About Landscape Architecture at Melbourne

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.

Programs in Landscape Architecture

Undergraduate Landscape Architecture

Undergraduate study in Landscape Architecture is taught through the Bachelor of Design and Bachelor of Environments.

Landscape Architecture reconciles human and natural processes in the spaces outside the building, whether public or private, large or small, new or reclaimed.

It utilises design and ecology to plan our external environments across the spectrum of urban, rural and natural that impact our lives both physically and psychologically. 

Landscape Architecture is a true mix of many elements that shape our places, and plays an important role in our experience of living, from neighbourhoods, to city squares, urban forests, parks, streets, gardens, and green infrastructure.
