This lifelong learning course is also part of the training track for the master's degree Landscape Architecture Extended.

Critique is an important means of reflection on the products of creative processes, it trains the ability of critical thinking and transparent communication. In this course, students will be asked to choose a contemporary landscape project and write an illustrated project critique. On the basis of literature studies, lectures, field studies, drawing and writing exercises, they learn to construct a coherent and well-founded critique.Insertado desde
