BP256 - Bachelor of Landscape Architectural Design
Plan: BP256P15 - Bachelor of Landscape Architectural Design
Campus: City Campus
Program Learning Outcomes Statement
The Bachelor of Landscape Architectural Design is distinct in employing a basis of critical enquiry through the activity of design in landscape architecture. You will work on real world problems and produce critical design responses with the feedback from experts, academic and professional practitioners who will guide you to produce work that is informed by conceptual and theoretical positions in contemporary context.
You will also employ techniques such as material testing and processes of fabrication and making to study basic principles of landscape construction and formation. By being immersed in a rapidly changing urban landscape and working with the conditions of growth and urbanity you will gain a strong foundational and applied understanding of the possibilities of the profession in a local and international context.
Upon successful completion of this program of study you will be able to:
- Critically apply a broad and coherent body of knowledge incorporating ecological, cultural, economic and ethical issues of landscape architecture in the medium of design using a range of design methods and practices.
- Engage in design practice that is characterised by creative and critical thinking skills, analysis, and synthesis.
- Communicate using a range of forms and media to clearly and coherently present ideas that are informed by the underlying principles and concepts of the technical and theoretical frameworks of landscape architecture.
- Assume responsibility for own ongoing learning and use initiative and informed judgment to position ideas of practice in landscape architecture and across disciplines.
- Reference technical and theoretical frameworks of landscape architecture to describe, critique, modify and adapt relevant and innovative forms of design for professional work in the discipline.
- Demonstrate the capacity for design practice to be an agent for problem solving and change; and engage this understanding to make design decisions with some independence.
