Landscape Architecture in Israel   


Landscape architecture plays a critical role in Israel, where land resources are limited, and cultural and social issues are cardinal. The landscape architecture program at the Technion is already an influential agent in the planning and design of Israel's landscapes, and aspires to develop further a comprehensive/leadership vision for landscape planning and design through research, education and professional activities.
