The University of East London has announced the launch of a new landscape architecture programme.
The programme builds upon the existing Masters programme at the University of East London and has been developed with the aim of gaining LI accreditation.
The programme is growing logically out of the School’s longstanding preoccupation with material, context, creative interventions, and regeneration both locally and internationally. It expands material and
contextual interests into the natural and urban environment, and actively seeks to explore the possibilities inherent in the temporal design opportunities that landscape architecture encompasses.
Programme leader David Buck, said: “The programme is designed to develop intellectual and practical professional tools for landscape architects, and through project-based studies search for new solutions to the increasing complexity of our urban landscapes, where the social, political and economic, as well as spatial pressures are most intense. It aims to work in collaboration with local and international agencies, and to tackle cutting-edge issues through the prism of site reality.”

The programme can be taken on a full or part-time basis. UEL is currently seeking accreditation from the Landscape Institute and can provide an update on this for potential applicants.
