PhD Studentship in Design in National Parks: Mediating the ‘Special Qualities’ of Place through Landscape Architecture and Artworks at the Faculty of Engineering of University of Nottingham in UK
About Scholarship: Since its origins in Yellowstone 140 years ago, the idea of a national park has evolved worldwide to encompass landscapes that are wild and built, natural and cultural. Common to all national park sites are the dual purposes of the conservation of the ‘special qualities’ of designated places, alongside the right of the public to understand and enjoy those places. This research investigates the role of built environment design within the parks context, focusing on the ways in which the creative design and physical modification of landscapes can contribute to both these fundamental aims.
