2018 Landscape Australia Conference to explore opportunities of the ‘Asian century’

The 2016 Australian Census revealed that, for the first time since colonization, migration to Australia from Asia has surpassed that from Europe. Australia’s fortunes are tied symbiotically to the region’s, and being able to fluently and meaningfully engage with Asian cultures is important if the opportunities represented by the so-called “Asian century” are to be taken advantage of.

The Landscape Australia conference, to be held on 5 May 2018 in Sydney, will present six design practices from across the Asia-Pacific – including New Zealand, India, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore and China – that are creatively and optimistically tackling the complex challenges of the twenty-first century.

The one-day conference will explore the opportunities and pitfalls of practising internationally, what Australian and Asian practitioners can learn from their regional counterparts who are facing similar challenges, and the importance of understanding cultural differences.

The speakers will bring a diverse set of backgrounds and perspectives to the conversation, spanning landscape architecture, horticulture, garden design, architecture and urbanism.

Each session will include a moderated panel discussion geared toward identifying tools and methods for Australian practitioners, researchers and students.

Information on the conference speakers can be found here.

This event is presented by Landscape Architecture Australia magazine and LandscapeAustralia.com, and organized by Architecture Media.
