Landscape architecture is an interdisciplinary profession that combines science and art. It makes use of natural and social sciences, technology, humanities and arts. Landscape is the focus of study, intervention and management. Landscape architects plan, design and manage outdoor spaces where people live, work and play, harmonizing aesthetical, functional and environmental values. Works range from planning and managing large and complex natural or cultural landscapes to designing the public squares and parks of our towns. Landscape architects develop skills to plan and design ecologically, socially and economically sustainable outdoor places which improve the quality of life of human communities as well the environment and the biological diversity.

Employment Prospects

Landscape architects are able to communicate and work with a large range of professions and leading multidisciplinary projects. They often work with architects, town planners, engineers, artists, historians, archaeologists, biologists, ecologists, geographers, among others. They can join landscape architecture offices, as well as architecture, city planning or civil engineering offices. They can also work for municipalities and central administration bodies, public or private institutions that own or manage parks and gardens, contractors, nurseries. Landscape architects are trained to set up their businesses, including their own private practices.
