Get soul into the city, landscape chief urges

Perth’s vast potential is being strangled by over-reliance on cars and poor use of public space resulting in bland, soulless suburbs, according to Australian Institute of Landscape Architects new WA president Greg Grabasch.

Mr Grabasch said Perth, with its abundance of natural beauty, had the potential to be a world-class city but years of leaving landscape and streetscape design to planners who had not been trained in creating effective public spaces was killing the city’s character.
