Centre for Landscape

Centre for Landscape

As a centre of research excellence, we advance understandings of complex interactions between people and landscapes.

Landscape is a transdisciplinary field of research

We look at human and natural factors as a whole, rather than as separate systems.

Landscape studies bring together researchers across disciplines, from arts and humanities to medicine, social science, engineering and natural sciences.
