The aim of this module is to introduce a current landscape architecture or specialty pathway topic (e.g. garden design) or issue implicating rural, urban and/or edge condition, local and regional scales, social and ecological systems and place and identity relationships. The subject of the studio will provide the student with theoretical and applied methods and background to understand and critically assess and develop a given project e.g. the urban territory. The topic will be developed as a design project through a landscape architecture, environmental design, planning and/or management approach.
