Comments about BA Architecture and Landscape - At the institution - Sheffield - South Yorkshire
You will study core modules from the two departments and specialist, course-specific modules which address the principle aim of the course; the integration of Architecture and Landscape Design. The specialist modules provide a focus around which the two disciplines come together. For example, in the first year this might include developing proposals for a small building in a public landscape. By the third year the brief for the building and its environment will be more complex and may focus on a substantial piece of urban design.
