LNAK10054U Theories and Methods in Landscape Architecture
The objective of the problem presentation is space and works seen in context; more specifically urban landscapes that create a framework for movement and lingering, experience, memory and perception. The subjects will be theories of landscape architecture; appraisement of architecture, history and nature; the nature of the arts of building and cultivation; strategies for planning, conservation, renovation and regeneration, and analytical methodology.
One aim of the course is that the student should be able to
identify landscape-architectural problems such that subsequent
strategies and solutions build upon critical and methodological
analysis and scientific theories.
The course aims at the acquisition of academic competence in critical reflective study of social phenomena of a landscape-architectural nature, understanding of the structures and processes in the arts of building and cultivation, based on an empiricism and theory.
The landscape architect must be able to elucidate, interpret and evaluate the significance and quality of the work, own as well as others. To this end the course aims at the acquisition of competent awareness of and the ability to achieve insight into the origins, development and semantics of landscape-architectural language.
Priority is given to the ability to observe and think spatially, socially and artistically. The landscape architect will explicitly or implicitly take landscape-architectural decisions on behalf of the society. This takes place through a democratic process, thus one requirement will be understanding of the role of participants and the required ethics.

The teaching builds on the idea that learning takes place best in the form of independent group study in dialogue with supervisors and fellow students, around a drawing board and with group presentation, with evaluation from response groups and supervisors. In addition there will be lectures and presentations by guest lecturers and supervisors. The main supervisor holds regular planning and evaluation meetings. Priority is given to competence in independent work, teamwork, presentation of and response to one’s own work and that of others. High priority is given to the ability to engage with the significance of the works and to evaluate the quality of one’s own work and that of others.
The course is project and problem oriented. High priority is given to analysis of representation, independent study of theory, teamwork, presentation and evaluation of methods and results. Guest lectures and plenum evaluations are included.
