Department of Landscape Architecture
A passion for landscapes and liveable spaces
Landscape Architecture transforms society's diverse desires for a liveable environment into reality. Our work ranges from designing private gardens and public green spaces to large-scale planning and nature conservation concepts. This includes both detailed plans and strategic approaches.
What makes Landscape Architecture special?
Creativity - Nature - Planning - Communication

Main research areas of the Department of Landscape Architecture
Our department focuses on the following main areas of research:
- Sustainable land use
- Renewable energies
- Biodiversity and species protection
- Cultural landscape development
- Allotment gardens and cemeteries
- Garden heritage conservation
Practical research is also at the forefront. This requires close cooperation with partners in industry and administration as well as other research institutions. Our activities and projects are therefore clearly aligned with our university's research focus III "Sustainable Planning and Construction, Land Use and Resource Management".
Landscape Architecture - an international field of work
The Department of Landscape Architecture maintains links with numerous other European landscape architecture colleges via the ECLAS network. European environmental directives and recent strategies such as the "Green Infrastructure Strategy" have resulted in extensive European dialogue. Increasingly, we also have close ties to colleagues from other countries, such as Indonesia and China.
