This subject undertakes a critical examination of foundational concepts within landscape architecture: landscape; nature; wilderness; place and site; the picturesque, the sublime and the pastoral; environment and ecology. It examines the 'construction' of these concepts both in different historical periods and in different cultural traditions. Students explore these ideas through outputs specific to landscape architecture, but also in other fields such as architecture, art, literature, cinema, cultural studies, and the natural sciences. It also considers improving understandings of and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander traditional knowledges and ongoing relationships to land and Country and the implications for the future of Australian landscape architecture.
