Urban Design and Landscape Division of the Department of Architecture deals with the designing of human activity spaces outside the buildings. Boundaries and Domains of Urban Design (UD) and Landscape Design (LSD) are blurred and depend more on emphasis put on the design. UD focuses more on the physical built-environment, hard-scape, urban enclosed spaces, and relationship between complexes of buildings. The scale ranges from neighbourhood to the whole city. LSD, on the other hand, focuses more on the biological environment, soft-scape, natural elements, ecosystems, and their relationship with the built environment. The scale ranges from household to the whole region where human activity takes place. UD is concerned with the design of the public realm and of the buildings, places, spaces, and networks that make up our towns and cities, and the ways people use them. It is an approach that draws together many different sectors and professions, and it includes both the process of decision-making as well as the outcomes of design. LSD is concerned with the design of outdoor areas, landmarks, and structures to achieve environmental, social-behavioral, or aesthetic outcomes. It involves the systematic investigation of existing social, ecological, and soil conditions and processes in the landscape, and the design of interventions that will produce sustainable human activity areas. At the undergraduate level, UD and LSD division offers introductory courses on complex urban and natural environment design issues of professional B. Arch program. At the postgraduate level, the division offers courses on the more advanced and provocative level, which lead to specialized and research-based postgraduate degrees like M. Arch; M.S Arch (Urban Design); M.S Arch (Landscape Design), and Ph.D.
