Course summary

We offer a rare opportunity to work within a strong landscape architecture research culture that is recognised internationally and reflected in the range of collaborations with other leading researchers. Our innovative, practice-led research engages with developing agendas in the public realm, urban open space, green space networks and sustainable, healthy environments.

Our research profile includes the following areas: Inclusive access to outdoor environments, led by the OPENspace research centre. This takes a cross-cutting approach to explore how public open space, urban parks and squares, green spaces and rural areas can contribute to quality of life. Our work includes a focus on the benefits to be gained from getting outdoors and the barriers currently experienced by different users, particularly those from disadvantaged groups. Innovative, practice-led design research, especially involving collaborations with artists and designers from disciplines outside landscape architecture. Environmental perception, including empirical research on the transactional nature of people’s engagement with place. Landscape design and planning to support young children, teenagers, older people, and other age groups and sectors within the population. The history and theory of landscape architecture, including development of the public role of the landscape architect in the 19th and 20th centuries. Research on salutogenic environments (the health-enhancing qualities of engagement with certain types of landscape) and on discerning the mechanisms behind any links between wellbeing and the natural environment.
