Landscape Australia Conference 2018

The 2018 Landscape Australia conference, to be held on 5 May in Sydney, will present six design practices from across the Asia-Pacific that are creatively and optimistically tackling the complex challenges of the twenty-first century through landscape architecture, horticulture, garden design, architecture and urbanism.

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

Among them will be John Lin, co-founder of research and design studio Rural Urban Framework (Hong Kong); Architecture BRIO principals Shefali Balwani and Robert Verrijt (India); and Yossapon Boonsom and Prapan Napawongdee, directors at Shma (Thailand).

Also speaking will be Salad Dressing founder Chang Huai-yan (Singapore); Jungyoon Kim, founding director of PARKKIM (South Korea); and landscape architect Megan Wraight of Wraight + Associates (New Zealand).

Facilitating the conference will be Dr Jillian Wallace (University of Melbourne); Elly Russell (associate landscape architect, Grant Associates); and Andre Toland (University of Technology Sydney).
