Population vs Landscape
Full price: $67.00
This course is based on Richard Weller's keynote presentation at the 2010 Australian Institute of Architects' National Conference extra/ordinary.
This course investigates the challenges and potentials of population growth in 21st-century Australia. He explores the implications of Australia's population, as well as innovative solutions - including unconventional planning, landscaping, and ways of thinking - to the 'problem' of accommodating the country's anticipated growth, while also revealing the creative potential for people involved in the planning, design and production of built form to tackle these issues.
