Theme Course 2020:2
Information from the course leader
Welcome to this year´s theme course Landscape Architecture in Transport Infrastructure!
This years theme course will be a development of last years exploration on Landscape Architecture and Transport Infrastructure. We will go through the tools of assessing the landscape, making strategic choices and design a project that carries movement.
A special focus will be put into designing structures for sustainable mobility and landscape adaptation of transport infrastructure. This means we will have sessions focused on bicycles, railway, ecological networks, multifuctional uses of transportsystems and social aspects.
The course team includes professionals from SLU, Trafikverket and several consultants working in the field of landscape architecture and transport infrastructure.
We will start the course online this year, and I hope to see you all on zoom the 30th august 2021 at 9 o´clock. During the course we will have acess to a venue called Hyllan (Alnarpgården, Sundsvägen 4, Alnarp). This course includes many lectures that will be held primarily on zoom. Litterature seminars will probably also be held on zoom. There is a number of fieldstudies that you will undertake individually, in smaller groups, and as a class. The common fieldtrips will be done in the Skanian region ( Skåne). If the guidelines for restrictions due to Covid virus are relaxed, we may spend more time together than I can plan for at the present.
Looking forward to meeting you!

ObjectivesThe course aims at theoretical, artistic and/or practical in-depth study of a relevant theme presented by the course management at the start of every course. The flexible nature of the course means that the general learning objectives of the course should be clarified at the start of every course.
After having completed the course, the student should be able to:
- carry out a theoretical, artistic and/or practical in-depth study of a theme
- present the results of the in-depth study of a theme in a convincing way
- reflect on methods, apply theories and results with regard to the actual in-depth study of the theme.
ContentThis course oversees occasional projects and studies that can contribute to diversity and quality in the student’s education. The theme can consist of an applied practical task or a research-related issue. Another area suitable as a theme is participation in architecture competitions. The students, in consultation with course management, are given major responsibility for the design and content of the course. The in-depth study of the theme can be carried out individually or in groups. Within the course, quality, theory/reflection, reporting and presentation are emphasised.
The course comprises in-depth studies of relevant themes. These studies are either group work or individual tasks, and may sometimes be scheduled, in which case they usually are compulsory. This is explained in detail when the course starts.
