Fundamental Courses

The fundamental courses impart basic knowledge in landscape architecture. This includes skills of the scientific subjects botany, soil science, hydrology and climatology, and of the humanities subjects history and theory of landscape architecture, and ethics. Building on this, basic knowledge about designing with plants, materials and construction is imparted. The fundamental courses create the basis for the following semesters, taking into account the previous professional education of the students with a Bachelor’s degree in architecture. The knowledge is conveyed in lectures and exercises. The focus is on fundamental courses that are linked to “Fundamental Studio I” in terms of content and method. All basic subjects are obligatory.
