This Public Space is a student competition for Australian and New Zealand Landscape Architecture students run as part of the 2015 Festival of Landscape Architecture: This Public Life.
Urban Streaming by Sian Du, Christine Blunden and Tama Whiting is an inner-city wetland design for Te Aro in Wellington New Zealand, that exposes an historic stream that runs through the city and encourages social interaction with water.
Aftershock by Alex Prijean, Katie Nguyen and Michael Cook is a group of disaster-resilient parks that are safe-havens where people can meet, play and interact with nature. The havens double as a disaster relief zone for the Te Aro region.
Switching Gears by Brinlee Pickering, Clare O’Brien, Grace Hunt and Michele Williams is an urban master plan for the Bays Precinct in outer-Sydney. The design champions the unique character of an industrial site’s past with dramatically altered natural conditions.
The three This Public Space finalists were selected by This Public Life creative directors Claire Martin, Ricky Ricardo and partner Van Alen Institute, New York. The winner is announced at the 2015 Festival of Landscape Architecture this Thursday 15 October in Melbourne.
