Designing Gardens from the Inside Out

Tuesday 11.00am – 12.30pm  ⇨ $95

 

Bio

Since 1997 Andrew has been the Landscape Architect at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria (Melbourne) where he is responsible for the design and implementation of an extensive range of landscape projects. His achievements include the award winning Ian Potter Foundation Children’s Garden (2004), Guilfoyle’s Volcano Project (2010) and the rejuvenation of the Fern Gully (2013).

Andrew also works in private practice as a Landscape Architect and has worked on a range of private and community projects that have involved extensive public consultation through the design process. In his broader role Andrew has taught at post-graduate, degree and certificate levels in horticulture and landscape design and currently lectures in the Post Graduate Certificate of Landscape Design at Melbourne University. He was a gardening commentator on ABC Radio 774 for ten years and has made numerous television presentations.

Andrew is also passionate about his role as principal landscape designer for Global Gardens of Peace, an Australian charity founded by Moira Kelly in 2013. Its philosophy is that ‘Gardens are Forever’ and its belief is that gardens are the centre for which to build a community around.

 

Synopsis

Gardens are a continuum – they often have a beginning but not always an end.

Community and client consultation is the essential building block at the outset. Creating gardens that are unique, functional and often beautiful starts at this point. Gardens cannot be a preconceived idea or a mechanical response, but rather an evolution of ideas that will ultimately connect people to their landscapes.

Andrew will case study a range of private and public projects, including gardens for individuals, families, children, communities and corporations, that demonstrate this process and allows for genuine community and client engagement.

And results in a garden that belongs.
