The 2016 Australian census has revealed that for the first time since colonization migration to Australia from Asia has surpassed that from Europe. Our country’s fortunes have long been tied to the economic markets of our regional neighbours, yet most agree that our understanding of Asian cultures, including design cultures, must improve if we are to seize the enormous opportunities offered by the “Asian century.”

The 2018 Landscape Australia Conference: Sharing Local Knowledge for a Global Future will present six exciting design practices from our immediate region – New Zealand, India, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore and China – that are creatively and optimistically tackling the complex challenges of the twenty-first century.

The one-day conference will explore the opportunities and pitfalls of practising internationally, what Australian and Asian practitioners can learn from their regional counterparts who are facing similar challenges, and the importance of understanding cultural differences.

The speakers will bring a diverse set of backgrounds and perspectives to the conversation, spanning landscape architecture, horticulture, garden design, architecture and urbanism, to ensure engaging and lively debate.

Each session will include a moderated panel discussion geared toward identifying tools and methods for Australian practitioners, researchers and students.

The event will be held on Saturday, 5 May 2018 at the Frank Gehry-designed Dr Chau Chak Wing Building at the University of Technology Sydney (TBC), with morning and lunch breaks on the Goods Line, a multi-award-winning linear park designed by Aspect Studios and CHROFI.
