The UNSW Master of Landscape Architecture program aims to produce scholarly, creative designers who value well-designed landscapes as central to vibrant, healthy and equitable urban and regional environments. At UNSW, we engage with the campus, the surrounding city and the Sydney region as our landscape laboratory, and encourage our students to engage with international issues and experiences. The core of the program is the design studio sequence, with each studio supported by a skill and/or knowledge-based course. The design process is informed by research and critical analysis of landscape sites and systems, and design outcomes are shaped by modelling, testing and dialogue. Prescribed electives provide opportunities for students to pursue interdisciplinary, specialised interests across the faculty, particularly in the areas of urban design and planning; urban renewal and regeneration; spatial analysis; communications and visualisation, architecture, and sustainable design and development. The final studio is a capstone experience which provides students with the opportunity to undertake an independent research based design project.
