The History and Evolution of Training in Landscape Architecture
The Versailles-Marseille National School of Landscape Architecture International Conference, May-June 2021
DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION EXTENDED 3 JUNE
The teaching of landscape architecture has undergone changes of which few people are aware even though in the schools of landscape architecture teacher-researchers in France and Europe (ECLAS) have been working on this subject for several years now. At the École nationale supérieure de paysage de Versailles, an “Archives and old collections” department was set up several years ago to take stock of pedagogical archives and promote their use. A small group of teachers and researchers propose to examine this question and to organize, on the occasion of the Biennale de l’Architecture et du Paysage d’Ile-de-France in 2021, a two-day conference on the teaching of landscape planning and architecture in France, Europe and the World. This event will focus on three main themes:
- The history of training in landscape architecture up until the end of the Second World War.
- The evolution in training in landscape architecture from 1947 (creation of IFLA) to the present day.
- The contribution of different disciplines and of interdisciplinary approaches in the training of landscape professionals and landscape architects.
