Australia is a large country with many diverse landscapes ranging from dry forests through deserts to tropical rainforests. The landscape architecture profession in Australia is just as diverse as the landscape.
Julian Raxworthy and SueAnne Ware have recently edited ‘Sunburnt’, a discourse about the different ways of approaching contemporary landscape design in Australia. Thankfully, they have side-stepped the temptation to produce a coffee table book and have created a book that reflects on each project, thus giving the reader a true understanding of the landscape design, its influences and surroundings.
The second edition of WLA landscape architecture quarterly magazine is out now with a feature of the National 9/11 Memorial in New York by PWP Landscape Architecture and Michael Arad. The front cover features the Flight 93 Memorial in Shankville by Paul Murdoch Architects and interesting project that touches lightly on the landscape. We have several projects from across the world including Canada, Switzerland, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, China and other locations. We also published projects designed by Workshop:Ken Smith, OKRA, IBI, HASSELL and others. This edition also includes a review of the new book Sunburnt that gives a great insight into contemporary landscape architecture in Australia.
