Prior knowledge

Knowledge corresponding to 60 credits in landscape architecture including 30 credits studio courses.


The purpose of the course is that the student should develop and practice his/her ability to handle questions within spatial planning in municipalities and to work in a group. The student should practice in acting as a landscape architect within the framework of a given theme and to acquire a more balanced picture of the professional role of the landscape architect in relation to other actors.

Learning objectives:
After having completed the course, the student should be able to:
- process and design spatial and structural correlations and changes in a major landscape segment
- draw up contracts with independently phrased problems within the framework of the course theme and well-motivated strategies to solve those problems within the time frame allowed by the course
- show the ability at oral presentations, in submitted presentation material and in written reflections to apply basic rhetoric and communicative knowledge.
- account for the working process of the group and reflect on the student’s own and the group’s common standpoints during the course of the working process


The course comprises both theoretical and practical elements, even if emphasis is on the latter. The practical work covers sketching work and work in model both individually and in group. A continuous dialogue between course leaders and students is maintained through seminars, one-day sketching, part presentations and submission of written work. An important element of the course is rhetoric. The ability to express one’s intentions and to convince other actors orally, in writing and by means of pictures is practised in several different elements.

The course offers a framework within which the student to a large extent is free to exert his/her own influence on both the orientation of the work and the result itself. Great weight is attached to the ability of students to work in a group and together seek, find and formulate as well as present solutions to problems within the framework of the course theme.

The course is implemented as a project and should be seen as a forum for creative work, dialogue and development. Teachers and instructors are available during the course of the work as motivators and discussion partners.

Compulsory attendance applies at course introduction, municipal visit, weekly seminars, study trip, group dynamics teaching, internal criticism, municipality presentation and group evaluation. Only this attendance suffice however not to perform a project that can become approved in the course but an active group assignment and good interaction with course administration is activities that are necessary for a successful work process.

The course gives 15 skills training credits.
