Academics launch publication to make research accessible to Landscape Architects

Academics from the Department of Landscape Architecture have launched an online publication, which aims to make their research easily accessible to Landscape Architects working in practice.

Research for Landscape Practice

Research for Landscape Practice includes a mix of reports, toolkits, books and academic papers, most of which can be downloaded free of charge.

The research reflects the wide-ranging areas of expertise of Department staff and covers topics from place, inclusion and equity to ecological design and creative, spatial practices.

The publication was launched at an online event on Wednesday 7 October, where academics were given three minutes to explain their most recent work.

The event was attended by Landscape Architects working across the UK, as well as department students and alumni.

Director of External Relations, Dr Clare Rishbeth said: “All too often the work of an academic department is hidden or difficult to find. Exchanging ideas within landscape architecture and across its various boundaries is, we believe, necessary for an effective, vigorous and forward-looking profession.”

“We have created Research for Landscape Practice to provide better access to our research and have given priority to outputs that might be most useful to landscape architects working in practice.”
