Resilient futures through collaborative teaching

Education Architecture, Landscape and Urban Design play key roles in how we shape the future of our cities. COP26 has laid bare the severity of the challenge for us to limit climate change to below 1.50C. The University of Sheffield’s unique dual architecture and landscape architecture programme has led the way for 20 years in the collaborative teaching of the two disciplines as a vehicle for the holistic design of sustainable environments. The programme explores the interrelationship between the two disciplines, seeking to explore the opportunities presented through considering the temporality of design. Buildings that need to function and conserve energy from inception to landscapes that start to come to the fore as they mature requires a unique awareness of the passing of time. More recently, we have sought to explore the nature of re-use in both buildings and landscapes as a fundamental part of reaching a zero-carbon future. The dual programme inherently asks students to understand temporal issues at a range of scales, spatial configurations and materiality in the context of a changing climate. This understanding requires the students to engage with the temporality of their architectural intervention and the dynamic landscape over millennia, in turn understanding the impact of the choices they make now on the future of the citizens who will inhabit their work. The programme is driven by a series of joint projects that allow the dual students to really understand (fully engage with) the positive power of collaboration in driving towards a more resilient future. This paper will expand upon the mechanisms and outcomes of this collaborative approach to teaching to create designers whose knowledge and skill set straddle the disciplines of Architecture and Landscape. architects, landscape architects and urban designers capable of delivering a more


Howard Evans has a background in both Architecture and Landscape Architecture and has worked in architectural practice and university teaching since graduating in 2001. He is director of the dual Architecture and Landscape Architecture course at Undergraduate and MArch level at the Sheffield School of Architecture and has established the pioneering Dual MArch course in Architecture and Landscape Architecture [MALA]. He uses his practice work to contribute to university teaching in low carbon architectural technology. He is also a director with RIBA Award winning practice, Chiles Evans + Care Architects. He has led many of the practice’s major building commissions including the award-winning Artemis Barn. He was named RIBA Yorkshire Architect of the Year 2015. The combination of practice and research has enabled him to work on award winning architecture at both regional and national scales whilst pursuing research interests at national and international levels. This has led to a strong interest in low carbon buildings and highly contextual architecture. He particularly enjoys the deep connection between sharing real world knowledge with students and at the same time learning with them about cutting edge changes and the challenges facing the wider profession and society as a whole.

Andy Clayden is joint director of the dual Architecture and Landscape Architecture programme and is a senior lecturer in the Department of Landscape Architecture University of Sheffield. His research and practice focuses on sustainable landscape design, natural burial and the design and management of cemeteries. He has co-authored books and book chapters on sustainable housing, rainwater management and natural burial and has also contributed articles to a range of pier reviewed journals. His teaching is informed by his research and practice and he delivers a range of modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, which include integrated projects, taught across Architecture and Landscape Architecture for dual students. His practice work has included a commission by the Royal Horticultural Society to design and construct a demonstration garden to communicate the impacts of climate change and how this will inform the design of these spaces.
