Event Description

Ranging from the micro to the macro, the semantic to the structural, this lecture argues that landscape architecture is theoretically and practically equipped to integrate and lead the various disciplines involved in the formation of the built environment.

Richard Weller is Winthrop Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Western Australia (UWA) and Director of the Australian Urban Design Research Centre. His design work has been widely exhibited, including in a retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney (1998) and published as a monograph by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2005. Professor Weller’s recent planning work has been published by the UWA Press in 2009 under the title of Boomtown 2050: Scenarios for a Rapidly Growing City, and his current research concerns urban growth scenarios to meet Australia’s predicted mid-century population growth.
