Of great importance for the practice of an architect and urban designer are the properties of the plant material and its use in a landscape design. Emphasis is also put on the principles and rules of planning, making and maintaining green spaces. In classes and tutorials students get acquainted with the best examples of implemented garden architecture, reconstructed gardens and parks and newly established green areas.
