The two-year Masters of Landscape Architecture and one-year Masters of Research in Landscape Architecture are both founded on close alliances between researches and select practitioners and their shared interests in: climate change, coastal and other hydrological territories, infrastructure and urbanisation; the transformation of practice by scanning, remote sensing and other landscape applications of digital technologies; the co-production of future landscapes incorporating Indigenous and non-Indigenous knowledge systems; the production and disruption of ways of seeing landscapes, past and present, at discipline’s centre and at its margins.
Within this framework, students develop their own agendas, critique received wisdom, experiment with new methods and techniques, all the while seeking to reshape the contours of theory and practice in landscape architecture.
Current fields of research, with which all masters students will engage, focus on include:
- → The infrastructures of the future, and how they are affected by climate change.
- → Digital technologies that are changing the way landscape architects practice.
- → Caring for country, which recognises the role of Indigenous knowledge systems
- in the co-production of future landscapes.
- → Critical landscape aesthetics.
