I am currently undertaking a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (hons) at UNSW. Having lived on both the east and west coasts of Australia I have honed my appreciation of the Australian environment, its urban landscapes and how they interrelate. I have also lived in London and travelled extensively through Europe and the US where I have visited and studied global best practice landscape projects. My experiences have instilled in me a..

‘passion for exploring the relationship between natural and urban systems in the built environment..’

Specific ecological groupings were chosen to support and attract diverse groups of fauna, provide ecological services and soften the hard industrial landscape for the human experience. It is emphasised that the scheme does not detract from the day-to-day workings of the area and can be extended further afield. The roofscapes were chosen based on their location, structure, shape and suitabiility to be connected with a legible path system that allows for interesting interactions with nature while passing through a complex industrial site.

MEISSEN MASTERPLAN DESIGN STATEMENT

REPAIRING FRACTURES This masterplan seeks to repair fractures in the town of Meissen caused by successive floods. Using the motif of cracked porcelain glaze we explored the similarities between the street patterns of the original Meissen settlement and the fractured patterns in the glaze. Beyond the town the surrounding rural patchwork also mimics the natural pattern formation. These patterns are created along the lines of minimal energy pathways. We seek to create a dynamic system for Meissen, one that celebrates the vitality and life giving waters of the Triebisch. By reinvigorating and strengthening the green connections through the town and along the riverside we seek to create new habitat opportunities for iconic German wildlife. The Coal Stockyard Park is a remarkable space that will connect an existing community with a new riverside neighbourhood and public transport links.

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

INTERTIDAL ECOLOGY URBAN LINKS Student Jason Monaghan Program Bachelor of Landscape Architecture DESIGN STATEMENT The White Bay Power Station site is a phenomenal postindustrial landscape with latent ecological and historical values. This scheme aims to create a new landscape with an integrated metropolitan feel for the proposed Textiles Museum site. This landscape will maximize the users contact with nature and provide a seamless arrival to the Textiles Museum entry. Activated edges will connect with the city and the harbour organically and physically. The site overall is a critical urban juncture and forms the final stage of the foreshore walk - linking City - White Bay and the Inner West Harbour.

VEGETATION CONNECTIONS 1:10000

Program Bachelor of Landscape Architecture PROJECT STATEMENT This scheme aims to organise facilities for efficiency and accessibility and uncovers the hidden hydrology of the site. The proposal has a new linear layout of sporting fields and courts with naturally shaded connected pathways for better way finding

�A�E� CA�CH�E�� ���E 1�5000

and spectator comfort. The new basketball courts take advantage of the existing landform and it’s possible to BBQ in the grove while viewing a game close by.

A strong sense of identity and place is achieved through the use of an indigenous planting palette. The site allows for a transition of plant assemblages, from the rugged Coastal Sandstone Heath at the eastern edge through the Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub on

01

the exposed ridges and slopes and finally the Sydney Freshwater Wetland on the flats. The vegetation extends habitat links with adjoining Centennial Park and Waverly LGA.
