Landscape Systems develops critical understandings of the landscape as the central organising element in spatial systems. It interrogates the role of landscape in an increasingly complex and uncertain human world. Using case studies, it examines human environment interactions that shape the way we understand the urban and non-urban environment.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Critically explore and synthesise global social and environmental challenges;
2. Evaluate Landscape systems in an urban environment using a systems theory approach;
3. Interpret reports and strategic documents that affect sustainable development; and
4. Present coherent, well researched responses to a range of identified issues in natural systems.
Three hours of on-campus lectures, interactive workshops, on-site practice and research, and problem based learning per week.
