Landscape Architecture

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

The field of landscape architecture involves the programming, planning, design and management of land and green spaces, mostly in urban environments. This frequently includes outdoor public areas such as parks and city squares, but it can also include private sector work.

Officially known as the Italian Republic, the country is found in southern Europe. The official language is Italian and the cultural rich capital is Rome. Many of the world's oldest universities are located in Italy, in particular the University of Bologna (founded in 1088). There are three Superior Graduate Schools with "university status", three institutes with the status of Doctoral Colleges, which function at graduate and post-graduate level.

Best Masters in Landscape Architecture in Italy 2017. The Department of Architecture “dArTe”, was established in 2012. It offers graduate-level professional education and advanced research opportunities in architecture and allied design fields as interior design, landscape design, urban planning, restoration, enhancement and management of the architectural heritage. It focuses on developing ideas in architecture, researches on social, cultural, and physical context, as well as takes on an exploration for alternative ways of material utilization. The objectives of “dArTe”, reflect the view that architecture is an intellectual discipline, both an art and a profession. The program, therefore, is based on the following intentions: to stimulate artistic sensitivity and creative powers, to strengthen intellectual growth and the capacity to develop creative and responsible solutions to unique and changing problems, and to help the student acquire the individual capabilities necessary for the competent practice of architecture and lifelong learning (in reference to the European Union Directive 2005/36 governing the exercise of the profession of architect in Europe). The task of architecture is the creation of human environments. It is both an expression of human values and a context for human activity. Through the design process, architecture addresses the interrelated environmental, behavioral, and cultural issues that underlie the organization of built form. The student of architecture is called upon to direct sensitivity, imagination, and intellect to the physical significance of these fundamental issues in designing a coherent environment for people. \; and a program leading to a Ph.D. degree in Architecture and Territory. In the Department are employed 52 full-time professors, of which 12 professors, 14 associate professors, 26 aggregates professors (researchers indefinitely). The department offers services and spaces for the study. It consists of 12 study classrooms, 8 workshop classrooms, 2 study rooms (total of 1,690 study stations); 3 laboratories (multimedia, language, materials); 1 library (47,400 volumes, 130 subscriptions to periodicals) with a total of 120 stations. Training objectives Quinquennial one-cycle degree course of study in Architecture (Master Degree) aims to turn out a professional with competences that characterize the generalist architect, according to the EU Directive 2005/36, that regulates and equalizes the profession of Architect in Europe. The main purpose of the Course of Study is the transmission and integration of knowledge in the field of architecture, city and territory. The didactics is aimed at a qualification that looks at design as process of synthesis and essential moment of knowledge and construction. There are two parts to the training proposal. The first, theoretical, aims at acquisition by the student of knowledge, methods and instruments concerning the architectural experience and its history, also recent; the second, more operative, is direct towards the know-how, the acquisition of competences to enter the profession of architect. By the end of the course of study the student must have acquired the knowledge and analytical ability related to the multiplicity of fields that characterize the professional of architect: To deeply know the history of architecture, of building sector, of city-planning, of architectural restoration and other environment and territory transformation activities connected to the practice of architecture and building engineering, as introduced by Directive 85/384/CEE and related Recommendations. To deeply know the tools and the representation methods, to have theoretical-scientific and methodological-operative knowledge on mathematic and other basic sciences, and to be able using this knowledge to interpret and describe complex problems, as well as that which require an interdisciplinary approach. To deeply to have theoretical-scientific and methodological-operative knowledge on architecture, on building sector, town-planning and architectural restoration and be able using this knowledge for identify, formulate and solve, in an innovative way too, complex problems as well as that which require an interdisciplinary approach. To have knowledge in management of company and enterprise and in professional ethics. To be able to speak and write fluently in at least one European Union language, other than Italian, for professional purposes. Employment opportunities The graduate must be able: To produce projects at different sizes, by the peculiar instrument of architecture, included those of large scale planning and consequently must manage the design processes and recognize the size of its inferences, up to the territorial scale. To use the acquired competences for verify the feasibility of the project, the built up phases of constructions, the transformation actions of built and natural environment also in a research context. To direct the construction of the project and coordinate, where is necessary, others experts involved in the field of architecture, building engineering, city planning, architectural and environmental restoration. To show proficiency in integrating various competences, managing the complexity of the problems and think over ethical responsibilities of the professional of architect and of the changes induced on physical and social context. At the end of the Course of Study, the graduate must have a personal self government and a critical ability on taking decisions in transformation, management, reading and representation actions of physical contexts, and must have developed ability in taking responsibility and taking part in the decisional process at interdisciplinary context with ability in coordinating actions too. The graduates can either carry out, besides freelance professional, functions of high responsibility in public administration and/or in public and private bodies operating in the field of construction and transformation of city and territory.

Master program in INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE - New forms of contemporary living The Master examines the space designed both in its aesthetic and functional aspects and in those, less obvious, methods of use and symbolic values. It emerges a dual path, starting from the instinct of men to make room, placing its own habitat, investigates the performative value of built, depositary of the fundamental values of the community. Suggestions and theoretical stimuli become the material on which it's possible to develop the project activity focusing all attention on making concrete what elective scope of a designer. Objectives and teaching methodology Design is experiencing a time of strong momentum and spreading. The rapid evolution of production methods and lifestyles increasingly requires adaptability and innovation. Anticipating and stimulating change has become one of the main drivers of growth and competitive factor of contemporary economies. The traditional disciplinary boundaries are overwhelmed by the need for greater interaction, ability to work in groups and technology transfer. Designers are required to know new tools of representation and sharing of information as well as to improve skills of listening to the needs. However, new opportunities open for designers who are asked to draw on the wealth of traditional knowledge without conditions or obligations formal style. The product of creativity, also applied to a theme as old as the living, can become a software that helps us orient ourselves or an interface to manage a home automation application but in any case it must be time to take advantage of new knowledge to improve the welfare and meet the need for comfort. It seems clear, even from this brief introduction, that the master is not intended only to transfer a pre-established knowledge and consolidated experience as the use of techniques, materials typical of other fields such as literature, chemistry, neurosciences, cinema, computer science. Finally we want to give space to the themes typical of professional practice and management of the project and to the team of employees that the customer, considered part of the quality of work of the designer. In addition to the conscience of the economics of the project, students IAAD must acquire the ability to do marketing of themselves - essential to present and understand their work and their skills. During the course, great importance is given to presentations and design contest: students are encouraged to make presentations of their work and supported to participate in national and international contests: the projects must not only meet the designers, but they must be able to be appreciated and understood by juries of experts and the public. FACULTY Professionals working in the respective academic subject sectors, who know the main players of the sector and the skills needed to be competitive in the job market, make up IAAD teaching staff. Lecturers will be instrumental in helping students improve and comprehend which aspects of one's professionalism need to be perfected to enter the job market with a lead. Contributions of excellence IAAD believes in the value of cultural and experiential contamination, opening the doors of the university to professionals known nationally and internationally, experts who contribute to the didactic, leading workshops, seminars and lectures. Students will have the unique opportunity to interact with "gurus" of the sector, who will join IAAD faculty as Visiting professors. [-]
