Diploma Background

  • The origin of the landscape architecture dates back to the first mankind settlements, when the human being started to shape communities and to obtain goods from nature, by means of the agriculture and pasture. Once the man settled down on definitive basis, he started to modify the surrounding, thus the landscape.
  • As long as sizes of those settlements increased, the corresponding settings started to be created by men, involving three new disciplines: architecture, landscape architecture and urban planning. The architecture concerns with the generation of closed spaces, which are the environment volumes; the landscape architecture with the open spaces, the typography, edaphology, hydrology, climatology and vegetation of certain land, which is situated within those empty spaces; and the urban planning with the support that gives structure to the first two spaces.
  • The design philosophy of the landscape architecture has received multiple contributions throughout three centuries: to consolidate the discipline and the professional practice; and to establish new theoretical, technological and methodological concepts that replace the formal concept and adjust themselves to the new community needs when searching the integration with the environment.

General goal is to provide the attendee with theoretical and practical tools for the architecture trouble shooting and to act properly in the approach of public urban spaces, empty spaces, and land.
