A decade of Australian landscape architecture through the lens.
The Site Seeing exhibition will trace the past decade of Australian landscape architecture as seen through the lenses of some of the country’s leading photographers.
Curated by Landscape Architecture Australia’s editorial director, Cameron Bruhn and assistant editor, Ricky Ray Ricardo, Site Seeing will present eight of the most engaging works of landscape architecture from the past decade through a suite of iconic images from leading Australian architectural photographers including John Gollings, Simon Wood and Dianna Snape.
Site Seeing will examine the relationship between beauty and expertise in contemporary Australian landscape architecture. These images adroitly capture and document important works from across Australia, but at the same time use the medium of photography to transport and inspire the viewer.
To provide an insight into the relationship between the art and the science of landscape architecture, the exhibited photographs will be paired with working drawings of the projects. These drawings will capture both the content and the language of landscape architecture documentation.
The projects will also be exhibited with a QR code that will take visitors to a review of the project as it was originally published in Landscape Architecture Australia.
Site Seeing will open on Thursday 16 October 2014 and run through to Sunday 14 December, at the Asia Pacific Design Library at SLQ. The exhibition coincides with the 2014 AILA Festival of Landscape Architecture in October.
