University of East London

Course Introduction

This programme is growing out of the school's long'standing preoccupation with material, context, creative interventions, and regeneration both locally and internationally; it expands material and contextual interests into the natural and urban environment and actively seeks to explore the possibilities inherent in the temporal design opportunities that landscape architecture encompasses; the programme is designed to develop intellectual and practical professional tools for landscape architects, and through project'based studies search for new solutions to the increasing complexity of urban landscapes, where the social, political and economic, as well as spatial pressures are most intense; the programme work in collaboration with local and international agencies on live projects where possible, and to tackle cutting'edge issues through the prism of site reality; the programme is predicated upon understanding the best of current local and international landscape practice, while also emphasising the development of intuition and processes to test and develop new forms of landscape practice; it welcomes students as fellow collaborators in a programme that seeks to develop new strands to contemporary landscape architecture that are innovative in approach to materials and the temporal possibilities at the core of landscape, and deal proactively with the complex environmental, social, and artistic questions of the time.
