Sunburnt – Landscape Architecture in Australia

A new publication Sunburnt authors – SueAnne Ware and Julian Raxworthy, features four TCL projects.  North Terrace, Craigieburn Bypass, Uluru- Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre and The Australian Garden, Cranbourne. Each has an essay positioning the project within contemporary landscape architecture. The essay and photographs are accompanied by plans and sections that help to orientate the reader. The book features 18 built projects in Australia with critical and engaging essays addressing contemporary landscape architecture.

 ‘Contemporary landscape architectural design projects from the last ten years are positioned in relation to the canon of landscape architecture. The conceptual framework comprises three axes: iconic, emergent and provocative projects. These categories are intended to provoke discussion about different ways of thinking about landscape architectural practice and discourse in Australia, compared to both mythologies of the landscape and its particular urbanism.’ SUN publishing

The book is being launched by Emma Wood (TCL staff member) in Melbourne at RMIT University at the Graduate Research Conference on June the 3rd. Copies will be available in Melbourne there for the first time or you can order online at www.sunarchitecture.nl  , www.architecturebooks.eu
