The ETH Zurich MAS LA program works within a range of technical and design inputs, theoretical issues and discussions, as well as feedback from international specialists, ranging from landscape architecture and CAD-CAM to Landscape Design Simulation.
The program will pick current problems and investigate new workflows, which can be evaluated and applied experimentally to current site-specific issues. The focus of the MAS LA will remain on the use and deployment of the latest modeling and visualization techniques, as well as 3D landscape illustration methods.
Graduates will be able to complete complex design tasks and to develop new kinds of design methods. The CAD programs chosen (i.e. Rhino) are particularly appropriate for the visualization of large-scale landscape designs. The files can also be exported to CNC mills. Also, students will develop solid competence in 3D GIS. Photography and video will be developed as design tools for illustration.
The program is geared towards university graduates in architecture and landscape architecture and those who are already familiar with various visualization and modeling techniques. Applicants should have at least two years of professional experience.
The deadline for applications has been extended until the end of June 2016.
