Master of Architecture / Master of Landscape Architecture

The University of Adelaide

Architecture and landscape architecture work in concert to create functional, innovative and beautiful buildings and places. This combined degree examines the vital relationship between the two areas of study and offers a holistic perspective on the profession today. How can we effect environmental change through design? How can we stay responsive to shifting needs and landscapes? You will graduate as an accredited architecture and landscape professional, well prepared to pursue architectural, landscaping or managerial roles. You could combine building and landscape architecture principles to innovate on residential complexes or skyscraper sites. You might become a green architect, focused on eco-design and native gardens. Perhaps you will be a project manager for emerging community hubs, social spaces, play areas and parks.
