This unit, coupled with a research thesis, stands as the summation of the knowledge and capabilities developed in design for the Master of Landscape Architecture degree.  Each student will develop their own design project for this unit, and it is assumed that this project will be coupled with the work undertaken in the research Thesis.  Each year the School’s course committee will develop the theme of investigation that the Thesis and Landscape Design Masterclass groups will consider for that year.  Each project will need to be aligned with the scope of this field of investigation, with the intention that the total unit output forms a rich and significant body of knowledge referencing this theme.  Although the scope of the landscape design will vary with the nature and scale of the selected projects, the final output for each project will be a substantial body of design and professional presentation work.

Each student will be appointed a supervisor, with whom they will work throughout the trimester, meeting on a weekly basis.  There will be two interim presentations to a larger group where general principles and progress will be critiqued.  The final submission and presentation will however constitute 100% of the grade for this unit.


Individual portfolio submission 60%, individual formal presentation 40%
