About Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architecture is a diverse and exciting profession, combining the creativity of the designer with the rigour of the scientist. It deals with the creation and development of the urban and rural spaces that surround us. Landscape Architects work with a wide range of hard materials and techniques, as well as plants and vegetation, to create places and spaces which help improve our quality of life and enhance our environment. The profession plays a major role in addressing the challenges of climate change and in reconciling the tensions between economic growth and environmental health.
In recent times, with climate change, the need for landscape architecture has become ever more relevant in reconciling the tensions between economic growth and environmental heath.
