Lincoln University Landscape Architecture

Landscape architecture blends science and art to achieve a balance between the built and natural environments and leads to extraordinary results which improve our world.

It’s about creating meaningful, sustainable, enriching and enjoyable places.  

Landscape architects can deal with a wide range of landscapes, from urban to rural spaces, infrastructure to parks, mountaintops to beaches. They plan, design and manage spaces to help find the best solutions to improve health and wellbeing and create thriving communities.

Landscape architecture has an important role in dealing with modern day problems, such as making it safer and easier to walk or cycle instead of using the car, and tackling the effects of climate change by coming up with ways to design with it.

Landscape architects cover a wide spectrum of work and they often find themselves working within some or all of the following:
•  Garden design
•  Urban design
•  Landscape ecology
•  Conservation design
•  Heritage landscapes
•  Master planning
•  Landscape assessment
•  Landscape management
•  Landscape planning

There’s a huge demand for landscape architects. The New Zealand market is growing quickly as more businesses realise the qualities that landscape architecture principles can bring to a project.

In 1969, we founded New Zealand’s first professional landscape architecture qualification. When you attend our internationally recognised School of Landscape Architecture, you’ll work with some of the world’s leading practitioners on a broad mix of design, ecology, planning, field tours and real world projects.

You’ll enjoy a dedicated space on campus with beautifully designed studios, room to install equipment and space to lay out plans so you can grow your creativity to its fullest potential.

Our landscape architecture graduates have a reputation in the industry as the cream of the crop, because of the experience they gain during their studies.
