Abstract

Landscape architecture education in Europe is now in its ninth decade. Before the First World War, there were garden design courses and some teaching of landscape architecture on planning courses, such as that at Liverpool University taught by Thomas Mawson. But the first landscape architecture programme in Europe was set up at Ås in Norway in 1919. By the 1930s, there were university courses at Kaiser Wilhelm University in Berlin, at the University of Reading, and at the Timiryazev Agricultural Academy in Moscow. Elsewhere in Europe, landscape architecture began
much later: the Versailles school was set up in sixties, while in Poland there has been a remarkable growth since 2000.
