This subject gives students a detailed and critical introduction to the discourses and practices known as 'landscape urbanism' that have emerged over the past two decades. It provides a platform for students to investigate the historical, theoretical, thematic and interpersonal contexts of the movement as well as its legacies. Building on the knowledge of landscape infrastructure developed in the last teaching session, this subject considers the relationships between landscape architecture, architecture, urbanism, planning, ecology, and the broader environmental and social contexts with which they engage. The subject also contextualises the influence of landscape urbanism, examining how it currently influences practice and may anticipate future disciplinary directions. This examination of contemporary and future landscape architectural thinking and practice reviews how landscape urbanism has helped recalibrate an awareness of space and time as conditions operating at territorial and planetary scales and within geologic time frames respectively.
