Dutch Architecture meets Dutch Landscape Architecture

General description

To promote connection with further education and landscape architectural together with architectural professional practice, this minor, “Dutch Architecture meets Dutch Landscape architecture”, will be organized in cooperation with Van Hall Larenstein (VHL)

You will learn about the history of Dutch Architecture and Dutch Landscape Architecture and how these architectural fields are historically connected and become more and more intertwined in current practise. How can challenges such as climate change, sustainability and green cities lead to new shapes and different materials, inspiring expressions or even give rise to new architectural typologies?

During the minor each individual student is challenged to make a site specific design which incorporates both building and landscape elements in a comprehensive design for a self-chosen location and programme, within the boundaries of The Municipality of Arnhem.

You will visit the highlights of modern projects in which both disciplines coincide. You will have a hands-on, inside-out experience on the spot. You will discover design tools and will learn how to use them.

You will be part of a mixed group of students from different countries, with an architectural and landscape architectural background (or related fields in design), which will encourage cross over learning.
