The balance and definition of private and public space will be given careful consideration in design. We know this as place making and we know that it has positive effects on us all, in a human way.
Often ideas of sustainability and being environmental are very abstract. They’re conceptual ideas. But the way people identify with those ideas is place, it’s with landscape, it’s making a difference in a specific place in a specific way. That’s the excitement I have for landscape architecture in terms of what it can bring to this country. It’s about connecting people to places … and the way that people are beneficial rather than just somehow a negative impact on the environment.Mick Abbott, Associate Professor of Design, Lincoln University
