- This article presents education strategies and results of the research conducted at the University in Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture in the period between 2009th and 2012th by Master’s degree students. The main scope of the research was on situating an architectural intervention in different landscapes. The power of learning from the nature changes the material and sensual possibilities of architecture by expanding the ways in which architectural interventions may be conceived. In this kind of architectural education architecture and landscape are allowed to intersect and intertwine with society, affecting the process of living, thus creating a new cultural landscape as a part of the sustainable society.This article indicates that contemporary development of society requires a new architectural paradigm, in which landscape and architecture form a unique place-based system. In order to develop a new architectural paradigm it is necessary to starts from the process of architectural education. It would contribute not only to new trends in architectural education as a part of the modern development of humanities and social science, but also to the awareness about the need for the socially responsible architect.
