    Teaching Landscape: The Studio Experience gathers a range of expert contributions from across the world to collect best-practice examples of teaching landscape architecture studios. This is the companion volume to The Routledge Handbook of Teaching Landscape in the two-part set initiated by the European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools (ECLAS).

    Design and planning studio as a form of teaching lies at the core of landscape architecture education. They can simulate a professional situation and promote the development of creative solutions based on gaining an understanding of a specific project site or planning area; address existing challenges in urban and rural landscapes; and often involve interaction with real stakeholders, such as municipality representatives, residents or activist groups. In this way, studio-based planning and design teaching brings students closer to everyday practice, helping to prepare them to create real-world, problem-solving designs.

    This book provides fully illustrated examples of studios from over twenty different schools of landscape architecture worldwide. With over 250 full colour images, it is an essential resource for instructors and academics across the landscape discipline, for the continuously evolving process of discussing and generating improved teaching modes in landscape architecture.

    "Recognizing how landscape architects employ knowledge from a wide range of disciplines, the editors of Teaching Landscape: The Studio Experience present examples where educators create learning environments that resemble real-world situations in which students learn how to synthesize case-specific information. Authors from around the world pass on inspiring experience where, by addressing a variety of challenges at different scales, students work in groups to develop design and planning approaches, to apply different theories, methods, techniques and technologies, and to train in communication and management skills." - Diedrich Bruns, Professor Emeritus of Landscape Planning, University of Kassel, Germany
