Learning in Sheffield
By Ruth Slavid
On 3 and 4 March the Landscape Institute will hold a conference at the University of Sheffield, a reintroduction ofits annual members’conference. The landscape department at Sheffield has a fantastic reputation and so it is appropriate that the conference will look at beauty, function and sustainability in the age of austerity. As part of this it will also examine the relationship between research and practice. To celebrate this, this issue of Landscape has a special focus on the department and its research. We start by looking at the public realm masterplan for the university campus and then focus on the teaching and some specific research projects.
