Summary

The MA Landscape Architecture (MA LA) programme is designed for outstanding landscape architecture students. Graduates from the programme, which is accredited by the Landscape Institute, have joined some of London's leading landscape practices, have founded award-winning international design studios and have led strategic urban design projects like the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The core component of the MA Landscape Architecture programme is the design studio where students engage with landscape, urban design and planning projects in the UK and abroad. With a team of leading academics and practitioners the students develop their design projects through tutorials, workshops and design reviews. Students are encouraged to attend field-study courses abroad (recently to New York and Istanbul) which inform their design projects. Visits to London’s art galleries (Tate Modern, ICA), libraries (RIBA, British Library) and important landscapes (Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Kew Gardens, Royal Parks) provide inspiring contexts for these postgraduate studies. Teaching is informed by comprehensive technical, professional, digital design, research and theory seminars. An international lecture series has recently included James Corner (Field Operations), Eelco Hooftman (Gross.Max) and Martin-Rein Cano (Topotek1). Details of these international events, lectures and student portfolios can be found on: http://thelandscape.org/
The programme is based in the Department of Architecture and Landscape in a new state of the art building. It is equipped with fourteen green roofs, aquaponics lab, digital workshops, model workshop, photography suite, film studios and animation suites. The building also includes extensive design studios, a world-class library and two gallery spaces.
The building is located in the heart of Greenwich, the newest addition to a suite of magnificent buildings that occupy the UNESCO World Heritage site and the location of the Greenwich Prime Meridian.
The aims of the MA Landscape Architecture programme are to:
• Act as part of a professionally accredited set of programmes, for students wishing to become Landscape Architects, leading from the BA Hons Landscape Architecture
• Establish social, ecological and design processes as a fundamental aspect of landscape architecture
• Encourage design experimentation leading to advanced and exceptional forms of designed landscape
