Architecture and Landscape Design

Architectural design is about understanding buildings and landscapes, and the way humans create places within them. Architecture, landscape architecture and urban design share the purpose of aiding society while creating structural works of art.

Architects, landscape architects and urban designers play a vital role in society. They consider and respond to environmental, cultural, social and economic issues – as well as functional needs and aesthetic values – to design the sustainable cities, buildings and landscapes we all inhabit.

Study Architecture and Landscape Design

Our Bachelor of Architectural Design is an exciting and versatile undergraduate degree that leads to a two-year postgraduate degree. Completion of both will enable you to practice as a professional in your chosen discipline.

The structure of the degree provides you with a broad knowledge base, allowing you to gain experience of a variety of different areas—including architecture, landscape architecture, planning, planning (urban design), property or construction project management—before selecting your chosen specialisation at postgraduate level.
