Master Track of Landscape Architecture
Landscape architecture is emerging as one of the most promising disciplines of the built environment, since we are in need for sustainable living (urban) landscapes. The Landscape Architecture master track at TU Delft (2 years) focuses on the design of space through time and scale and as part of landscape processes.
Landscape architects connect in- and outdoor spaces on the scale of the architectonic ensembles including gardens, the urban spaces including parks and green-blue structures and on the regional scale including metropolitan, rural and infrastructural landscapes. The focus on the architectonic form and the urban system make the relationship with the tracks of Architecture and Urbanism evident. Students learn to see the landscape as a contextual underlay for understanding, ordering and acting spatial transformations. Point of departure are the formal, material and cultural potentials of the site. To develop design skills students in the first year acquire knowledge of plants and vegetation types, soils, hydrology, ecology, sociology, history, theory and methods of landscape architecture. The graduation studio Flowscape, in the second year is structured around projects of our (section of Landscape Architecture) research programme: Landscape Compositions and Systems. Students contribute to the programme in the form of a design research, comparative analysis, design experiments and a research report and are challenged to take a critical position in relation to the discipline, the build environment and society.
On graduation, students receive a Master of Science degree in Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences (Landscape Architecture track). With this diploma you can list yourself in the ‘Dutch Register of Architects’ and apply for the title of Landscape Architect in the Netherlands after completing a period of professional work experience.
