The Amsterdam Academy of Architecture is one of the leading design academies in the Netherlands. We offer education and research at master level in the three disciplines of architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture (MSc). The Academy forms an inspiring, international community of 350 students, approximately 35 permanent employees and approximately 350 guest lecturers each year, from the (international) work field. The academy is part of the Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK) and is housed in a monumental building on Waterlooplein in the heart of Amsterdam.
As per September 1, 2022, we are looking for a:
Head of Master's Program in Landscape Architecture
who is willing and able to commit to the Academy and its educational vision for approximately two days a week for four years.
As Head of Landscape Architecture, you help determine the course of the Academy. You give direction to our education from the active role you take in the current landscape architecture debate, and you are the face of the landscape architecture course. You manage the thematic and substantive content of the entire curriculum and you are ultimately responsible for the programming of design education (the projects).
In addition, together with the Head of Architecture and the Head of Urbanism, you are responsible for the (interdisciplinary) design studios at the interface between architecture, urban design and landscape architecture. From the network of the Academy and your own network, you connect the content of these design studios with teachers from the professional field.
