The Department of Landscape Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna calls for application.

Public urban spaces should inspire us, emotionally involve and engage us. The importance of the city as an entity is defining our lives and urban planners, architects and landscape designers have an aesthetic and spiritual responsibility when it comes to developing our inner city environments.

The Landscape Art course introduces students to 'The New Conceptualist Landscape' approach to developing and enhancing our urban public spaces. This new landscape strategy often involves unique experimental approaches and unorthodox methodologies of analysis towards exploring the nature of urban sites.

The conceptualist landscape practitioner may not be focusing on a grand urban master plan, but upon smaller scale landscape interventions in order to emotionally activate dead, numb urban areas that are so much part of our lives as city dwellers. We believe in the need to reintroduce conceptually driven spaces that are expressed through horticulture a well as with new materials that support the concept. These conceptually driven art-forms will have the capacity to emotionally activate urban space for both the individual and the collective group, in this respect there is a social agenda. The course intends to engage students by encouraging them to explore and develop more experimental artistic approaches to creating these landscapes.

This is the first international course that will enable students of many creative persuasions to focus and develop their talents through exploring landscape as an artistic medium in itself.
