Summary Summary: Australia is landscape. Its landscape of sky and horizon, of vast distances, and the openness between urban centers, makes practicing landscape architecture uniquely intriguing. 'Sunburnt' examines spatial and material qualities that define the Australian landscape through the lens of landscape architecture. Contemporary landscape architectural design projects from the last ten years are positioned in relation to the canon of landscape architecture. The conceptual framework comprises three axes: iconic, emergent and provocative projects. These categories are intended to provoke discussion about different ways of thinking about landscape architectural practice and discourse in Australia, compared to both mythologies of the landscape and its particular urbanism. Exhibition: Royal Danish Design Museum (2011); P3 Gallery, London (2011); Delft University Centre for Contemporary Landscape Design Gallery (2011).
