Many landscape architects get hung up on the concept of BIM (Building Information Modeling), simply because it contains the word ‘building’. But BIM is really just the next technological progression in the AEC industry. It is a shift from creating printed drawings of the landscape, to creating and coordinating data within a digital model of the landscape. In some ways, the switch to BIM is perhaps more difficult than the switch to CAD because it requires a substantial change in the processes that have been in place since hand drafting.

With an understanding of the integration of the university campus and the cultural centre and the location of the site next to the main street (Huitong South Road), the overall planning strategy is to put all public landscape courtyards/ plaza closer to the south where they can be engaged and easily accessible to all public. At the same time the landscape courtyards/ plaza integrate better with the adjacent cultural facilities. This will also be where student quarters will be located with a small local hostel, community facilities and supermarket will be located providing services to the local residents, the students and those who are visiting this university town. A more active community life will be provided for students who prefer slight vibrant setting.

HASSELL has announced John Williams from RMIT University as the winner of the 2016 HASSELL Travelling Scholarship – Robin Edmond Award. John was selected following interviews with 18 students, nominated by the seven participating universities around Australia. His outstanding research project called ‘The Space In-Between’ took a multi-scalar approach to the reintegration of post-industrial sites, using phytoremediation strategies as a framework for urban land rehabilitation that supports greater accessibility, diversity and resilience. This project was undertaken as part of the Master of Landscape Architecture program at RMIT University.
