    This unit investigates elements of landscape design theory across a range of landscape scales and projects. It incorporates the rich history of landscape design and draws the salient lessons and ideas from the past and makes these relevant to our design practices in the present. It also incorporates the concepts, such as our relationship to nature, that differentiate landscape architecture from other design professions, and explores how these ideas impact on our understanding of good design practice.

    On completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. demonstrate a sound understanding of theories and philosophies that have underpinned design movements;

    2. demonstrate strong written, oral, and visual communication skills.
