     Landscape Architecture practice ranges across all scales of design, from largescale public projects such as the Olympic Parks in Sydney and Beijing, to suburban development, to smaller urban spaces and gardens.

    Providing a unique bridge between the design professions and the environmental sciences, Landscape Architecture offers creative opportunities to engage in core ecological, cultural, and social issues faced today. There is currently a worldwide shortage of landscape architects.
