Landscape Architecture & Planning
Category
Landscape
Description:
Landscape Architecture is quite simply the design of outdoor spaces in order to maximise their potential for both people and nature. Landscape Architects are part of a recognised profession with their own chartered institute, The Landscape Institute, which was founded in 1929. Landscape Architecture is an exciting and varied profession which may involve the strategic master planning for an entire region, or at the other end of the scale the development of detailed design proposals for a small public square or park. Planning is about ensuring that the decisions that are made regarding the development of our cities and rural areas takes into account the needs of all stakeholders, whilst also addressing economic and environmental concerns.
Landscape Architecture and Planning at Sheffield
The dual degree in Landscape Architecture and Planning is taught jointly between the Department of Landscape and Department of Town and Regional Planning. The inspiration behind the development of the course, which was the first of its kind, was to train Landscape Architects whilst also developing a detailed knowledge and understanding of the planning process and its impact upon development. Students completing this course will have a more comprehensive understanding of the context in which design takes place and the wider implications of their design proposals. This knowledge is particularly desirable when working with other environmental design professionals, and at a time when many of our cities are undergoing significant change.
The Department of Landscape and the Department of Town and Regional Planning are top ranked for their teaching and research excellence. In independent teaching quality assessments they scored 23/24 and a top rating of 5 (1-5) for research. The combination of two such highly regarded departments within the same University is unique within the UK.
Teaching Methods
A range of teaching methods are used across the two departments including: design studios, lectures, tutorials, workshops, small group projects, individual-based work, seminars and field courses. In the design studios you will be taught by department staff and visiting landscape practitioners who will work with you in small groups and on an individual basis to help you develop your design proposals. You will also have a personal tutor in each department who helps to develop independent learning and communication skills, as well as providing pastoral care.
Project Work: In the Department of Landscape all of the design-based modules are taught using project sites based in and around Sheffield. As you progress through the course the projects that you work on will become increasingly more complex and demanding. Frequently they provide an opportunity to work with the Local Authority or community groups to develop design solutions for real projects. For example in recent years students have worked with school groups and development trusts to provide design ideas for school grounds, housing areas and local parks. The Department of Planning also bases much of its teaching on projects which are based in the South Yorkshire area
Field Visits: Field visits are an extremely important part of the course. Visiting, analysing and evaluating different urban and rural settings is a very important part of your development as a Landscape Architect. In the first year, visits focus on the immediate landscape and are intended to familiarise you with the special qualities and character of the area in and around Sheffield. In the second year there is a short residential trip to a major city where it will be possible to see new and exciting approaches to urban regeneration and detailed design. Recent destinations have included Bristol, Cardiff and Glasgow. The third year starts with a week long field trip to a major European City. This year it will be Berlin. Previous destinations have included Barcelona, Paris, Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
Diploma in Landscape Design or Management
On completing your degree you will work for a year in a private Landscape Design practice or Local Authority. Depending on your degree and work experience you may return to complete the Diploma in Landscape Design or Management. The Diploma year is taught entirely in the Department of Landscape. Both courses are fully accredited by the Landscape Institute.
Overseas Studies
There are opportunities for overseas study. The department has educational exchange programmes with Landscape Schools in America, Holland, Sweden and Germany.
Highlights
- Excellent training in Landscape Architecture and Planning
- Excellent employment prospects
- Overseas and UK based field courses
- Excellent teaching in top-rated research departments
- Opportunities for overseas study and work
- Specialist department IT facilities
