Landscape Architects design with natural processes and built materials to improve the environment and the quality of all our lives. It is a profession that combines scientific and cultural understanding as well as vision and design creativity. Landscape architecture involves the planning, design and management of external space. It is a challenging discipline that draws on a wide range of skills. Landscape architects design regions, cities, neighbourhoods.... even gardens. They work alongside engineers, architects, ecologists and planners to shape the places we live, work and play in. As a profession it plays an important role in tackling climate change and protecting the environment.
UCD is at the forefront of Landscape Architecture education in Ireland. It is currently the only university in Ireland to offer an undergraduate degree in Landscape Architecture. This course is accredited by the Irish Landscape Institute and recognised internationally by IFLA, the global body for landscape architecture.
2021 End of Year Showcase
Welcome to the UCD Landscape Architecture End of Year Show for 2020/2021. In the following pages you will be able to see the work completed by our students - from first to fourth year – over this challenging academic year.
Normally we celebrate the hard work achieved by all involved with an end-of-year exhibition, where students, their families & friends, past pupils, potential employers, UCD staff and members of the Irish Landscape Institute raise a glass in recognition of all the hard work done. This year, we have been forced to move this online. So, please take some time to pour over this collection of digital work which, if you can, is best viewed on a big screen.
