Abstract

Landscape architects have always felt that they benefit, in practice and education, from fundamental and applied research. The results of recent surveys among landscape architecture educators now make it possible to conduct a substantive discussion about the connections between research on the one hand and teaching and practice on the other. Such connections, it seems, are still weak. To develop these connections and be able to define landscape architecture as a discipline that relies on its own body of knowledge, it is important to build a common framework of theory and methods, and to start developing specific standards for academic quality assurance, such as the evaluation of research. Strategies to put these objectives into practice include organising conferences, colloquia and seminars on research and research methodologies, and developing network activities for academic exchange, including links with research communities outside landscape architecture.

Les résultats d'enquêtes récentes parmi des éducateurs au paysagisme permettent de conduire une discussion positive sur les rapports entre la recherche d'une part, et l'enseignement et la pratique de l'autre. Pour développer ces rapports et pouvoir définir le paysagisme comme une discipline qui compte sur son propre corpus de connaissances, il est important de construire un tronc commun de théorie et de méthodes et de commencer à développer des normes spécifiques pour l'assurance d'une qualité universitaire, comme l'évaluation de la recherche.
