bachelor landschaps- en tuinarchitectuur

  • Landscape and garden architecture is an aesthetically-based profession founded on understanding of the (human) environment. As is true in the field, design is the core activity of the professional Bachelor in Landscape and Garden Design programme at KASK. Design is a creative process of exploration and inspiration leading up to the design, execution and long-term planning – the successful functioning – of outdoor spaces of diverse scopes and formats. In the design studios, students begin with the garden as a central theme, followed by assignments on an urban scale, to complete the programme with a final assignment on a true landscape scale. This practical approach consistently begins with actual, existing design problems and issues. In addition to the necessary design skills – with which a landscape and garden architect must be able to communicate his or her idea with visualization as a first language – he or she must also have sufficient insight into landscape, ecology and botany, and knowledge of the respective flora, soils, the history of landscape and garden design and the requisite technical stock-in-trade.

    The final Bachelor project in Landscape and Garden Design for the 2015-2016 academic year was an academic study project commissioned by the Municipality of Merelbeke, entitled ‘Gemeentepark Ijsenbroek, een recreatieve en educatieve groenpool’ (‘The Ijsenbroek Municipal Park: A Recreational and Educational Pool of Green’). This study project, including an architectural design and a vision statement, embraced every possibility of activating students’ competencies, skills and architectural creativity.
    In three large public green spaces around the centre of Merelbeke (and directly related to the town centre) the municipality envision the development of a new recreational infrastructure. These spaces all complement one another, with each having its own recreational function and its own spatial identity. One of the three, Ijsenbroek, at 15 ha, is being organized as a city district park for relatively passive and nature-oriented leisure. Here, the Schellebeek river valley plays an important role as a main artery in the outdoor space. In addition to the internal relationships within the larger whole of the natural complexes (tributaries, sources, landscape relicts and wooded areas), the Schellebeek serves to connect Ijsenbroek Park with the surrounding green elements.
