Contemporary Australian Landscape Design explores the current trajectories of landscape design in Australia. It articulates the development of modern landscape design in Australia after the Second World War and the major themes of its ongoing evolution since. This book brings together, for the first time, a striking selection of public landscape design projects from around Australia. More than fifty projects, completed since 1988, are described and illustrated with superb images from some of Australia’s leading architectural photographers. The collected works allow an examination of the new directions apparent in landscape architecture in the twenty-first century.
