The projects of Chilean landscape architect Teresa Moller convey an ambivalence which recognises the paradox that we cannot appreciate the landscape without altering it. Her work embodies a fearful restraint: sometimes there is nothing to see, at others the intervention is disarmingly stark. Moller’s paths, gardens, platforms and pools graft onto the terrain in a way which taps into a well of visceral experiences which acknowledge the significance of simply observing the nature in which she works. She makes observers observe and experience, like they never knew or saw before, that landscape which forms part of their life.

This talk is preceded by a presentation from Kerstin Thompson who discusses her collaboration with Callum Morton at the Monash University Museum of Art.

AACA Competency: Design, Project Delivery


Teresa Moller: Principal, Teresa Moller and Associates

A protégé of pioneering Modernist landscape architect Juan Grimm, Teresa Moller is today regarded as one of the world’s foremost designers of landscapes, gardens and urban spaces.
The works of Teresa Moller demonstrate both a belief in nature’s rehabilitative power, and ambivalence towards altering the natural world with manmade structures. Accordingly, her landscape interventions seek to both create a stage for nature, and to disappear entirely into it.
The most well-known and representative of Moller’s projects, Punta Pite (2005) demonstrates the subtlety, imagination and poetry for which the Chilean landscape architect is renowned.
