Australian landscape design: key sustainable principles

Catriona was commissioned to research and write a report on Australian landscape principles for Shanghai Municipal Engineering Design Institute. This report was to guide the planning choices made by SMEDI for a site being developed near Sydney.

As requested by the client, the examples in this report are well-known and award-winning landscape projects in Australia, that focus on design using native plants, stone, wood and natural materials and address topics, such as ‘global problems’, ‘green house’, ‘ecology’, and ‘sustainability’.
