This design studio provided students with the opportunity to build upon their understanding of landscape infrastructure with a specific design project. Students applied theory, principles and knowledge gained from their concurrent Landscape Infrastructure subject to a real-life design challenge: the Parramatta River. Students explored a landscape architectural design response for the river, with particular attention given to the challenges of urban planning and design, as well as sustainability imperatives and community aspirations for the catchment. Responses considered strategies for returning the river to safe water-quality levels for swimming and other forms of direct contact with the water. Students engaged with the site through the tools and processes of landscape infrastructure to generate design solutions that were flexible, decentralised, multifunctional and catalytic in nature.
