Requisite(s): 11185 Contemporary Issues in Landscape Architecture AND 11182 Urbanisms AND 11181c Landscape Architecture Studio 5: Infrastructures
The lower case 'c' after the subject code indicates that the subject is a corequisite. See definitions for details.


This subject provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the theories, application and existing conditions of landscape infrastructure. It approaches this newly emerging field as a reaction to and critique of the last century's approaches to infrastructure in urban environments. The subject investigates the infrastructural needs of the city and its inhabitants into the future. It explores the potential of placing landscape at the centre of systems and strategies that are alternative and hybridised in nature. This subject prepares students for 11181 Landscape Architecture Studio 5: Infrastructures, through comprehension of landscape infrastructural theory and understanding of the tools and processes used to apply it.

This subject forms part of a broader mission working on real, contemporary issues in and around Sydney with six other studio groups from UTS. At times this includes large group workshops, excursions and review sessions promoting cross-disciplinary collaboration and exploration of ideas.
