Landscape Architecture

Landscape architecture is the design of outdoor and public spaces to achieve environmental, socio-behavioral, and/or aesthetic outcomes. It involves the systematic investigation of existing social, ecological, and geological conditions and processes in the landscape, and the design of interventions that will produce the desired outcome. Frederick Law Olmsted hailed public parks as the ‘lungs of the city’. A haven where one could escape the overcrowded, noisy and polluted streets. “We need to ensure that our public spaces provide just that. A healthy place in which to relax and enjoy the surroundings.”
