PRACTICE NEWS: CHARTING THE FUTURE OF PRACTICE AT THE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
We were pleased to be part of the recent International Festival of Landscape Architecture at the Gold Coast. Many excellent and important conversations were had over the three days of festivities.
UDLA’s Greg Grabasch moderated the Cultivating Cultural Intersections session. Involving discussions with Fiona Foley, Kim Mahood and Ezra Jacobs-Smith, this session questioned the way landscape architects might better engage with our country’s intertwined ecological and cultural complexity. Included in the conversation was a presentation by Ezra-Jacobs Smith, of the Rottnest Island Authority, about the current Wadjemup Burial Ground project. Thank you, Ezra, for sharing your thoughts on this project with the broader profession.
Our thanks also to the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects and to our friends and collaborators TCL, this year’s Festival Creative Directors, for a timely and thought-provoking program.
