Studio led by Turf Design Studio
Cities must learn to adapt and become resilient. Among the roles of a landscape architect is the responsibility to contribute to the city’s flora, and subsequently, the city’s canopy. Canopy is most often seen as a key reflection of culture and environment. At a deeper level, it also contributes significantly to urban systems, the usability of spaces in a city, and resilience.
Students were challenged to design an alternative masterplan and resolved design for Sydney’s Waterloo redevelopment project. Working with their understanding of canopy, from multiple perspectives, students explored the relationship between policy, physical design, place-making and a systems-based approach to urban landscapes.
