Landscape Architecture Australia

The future of landscape architecture education

26 Mar 2024

Pick up the February 2024 issue of Landscape Architecture Australia to read Claire Martin's article reflecting on innovation in landscape architectural education, after an industry roundtable.

In late 2023, Landscape Architecture Australia brought together representatives from Australia’s eight landscape architecture programs, along with AILA’s Education Committee Chair, to discuss the present and future of landscape architecture education amid emerging tools, processes, contexts, and trends.

The discussion explored the impact the pandemic has had on analogue skills, considered the importance of universities becoming culturally safe spaces, and emphasised the importance of fostering critical and creative thinking alongside the exploration of artificial intelligence.

The Roundtable on Innovation and Education was facilitated by Jela Ivankovic-Waters and Emily Wong and moderated by Claire Martin. The participants and university program representatives were Beau Beza (AILA Education Committee Chair), Julian Raxworthy (University of Canberra), Katrina Simon (RMIT University), Martin Bryant (UTS), Simon Kilbane (The University of Western Australia), Sara Padgett Kjaersgaard (UNSW Sydney), Scott Hawken (The University of Adelaide), Shannon Satherley (QUT) and Sidh Sintusingha (The University of Melbourne).
