Teaching at LAO

The designs and theses offered at the chair open up the appropriate environment for all participants* to deepen an independent design position and the critical examination of practical and theoretical aspects of landscape architecture.

Regular joint reflections in the studio encourage the exchange of ideas. We teach working systems, practices, and methodological knowledge in addition to weekly critiques to foster project development. This includes visits to design sites, field trips, and formats of experimentation, including in studio1zu1.

Umbau anstelle von Neubau, Urban Mining und kreislaufgerechte Wiederverwendung gebrauchter Bauteile werden deshalb als Strategien zur CO2-Einsparung in der Architektur aktuell intensiv…

The road represents a significant spatial barrier and prevents a pedestrian-friendly connection between the settlement…
