This subject aims to further landscape architectural design skills through the integration of a specific research agenda that may be tested through project-based speculations. The research agenda comprises a particular topic selected from a range of discipline areas including, but not limited to, computation and digital design in landscape architecture, construction in landscape architecture, environmental and performance-based design in landscape architecture, urban design and activism and the role of the landscape architect within critical cultural and ecological discourse. The subject also enhances a critical understanding of landscape architecture as both a discipline with an existing body of knowledge and a set of practices that continuously challenge and add to that body of knowledge. The subject requires the testing of ideas and modes of practice in landscape architectural design, and the production of design proposals that accurately and persuasively convey the most relevant ideas and practices at an introductory level.
