Abstract / Description of output

This paper examines issues pertinent to post-graduate Landscape Architectural education today in order to initiate a local transformation of a programme structure and its associated learning curricula. The paper explores the underlying knowledge of students coming into a post-graduate programme of Landscape Architecture and examines the advanced skills necessary to produce a Landscape Strategy. The Landscape Strategy and its formulation as a representation is analysed specifically as 1. Strategic planning of the landscape is an imperative skill within the disciplinary remit of landscape architects 2. Through an enquiry as to the place and value of the landscape strategy in an educational context it is possible to draw more general inferences about how and what we teach and the significance of knowledge attainment to the future of the discipline.
