Curtin University’s “Living Knowledge Stream” document deserves commendation for the richness of its interpretive material, its compelling vision, and its concerted focus on the subtle and particular attributes of the Bentley Campus site. It draws on ecology, hydrology, biology and Indigenous culture to encourage a deep understanding of place. This thoroughly researched and well-illustrated framework presents a comprehensive vision encompassing green infrastructure initiatives, restorative landscape design, creativity, cultural expression and the key aspects of delightful and high-quality public spaces.
