Co-creative director of the 2014 Festival of Landscape Architecture: FORECAST, Diana Snape, describes her experience: ‘These are exciting times for AILA and we feel enormously privileged to have been entrusted with their inaugural Festival of Landscape Architecture.
‘Our greatest hope for this year's FORECAST Festival is that it will prepare the ground for bigger, better and more AILA Festivals in the future. We strongly encourage members to put themselves forward as creative directors to help build a new tradition of festivals for Australia's Landscape Architecture community. We can't wait to see what happens next!’
