Abstract:

"This first history of landscape architecture in Australia profiles the people who have shaped the nations landscape and forged a profession: designers, architects, public servants and activists. Using archival images and plans, the book recounts in fascinating detail milestones such as the creation of Melbournes public parks, the acclaimed private gardens designed by Edna Walling and Paul Sorensen, the landscaping of Canberras broad open spaces, and the reclaiming of Sydneys harbour foreshore culminating in the redevelopment of Olympic Park. Making Landscape Architecture in Australia is the story of unique personalities and the battles fought over the right to determine the shape and form of the landscapes that make Australian cities distinctive." --Publisher description.
