Greg GrabaschPrincipal Director of UDLA - Perth WA

Greg is principal of UDLA, a small urban design and landscape architecture practice situated in Fremantle and Broome WA.  Through his career Greg has been involved in a large variety of urban and rural design projects, ranging from broad land use and master planning studies through to community and culturally inclusive place design.

The Studio’s design philosophy hinges on the understanding that the health of a community has a symbiotic relationship with how empowered participates are engaged with their environment, or have a say in changing their existing condition into a preferred one.

With learnings from the desert being applied to our suburbs, Greg’s discussion will take the audience through the journey of the ‘participatory design’ process and its proven potential to provide community capacity building outcomes.

  Andrew TurnbullDirector of Scott Carver - Sydney NSW 

Andrew is a leading Landscape Architect working widely throughout Australia and internationally for nearly 30 years. A guest lecturer at the Tsinghua University - Beijing coastal and waterfront development he offers a strategic approach founded in a philosophy of "place capital" - connecting commerce to people. Great places extend beyond a design response - they are a "stage" for social behavior, celebration and discovery that create an emotional response. It is personal. The success of a place can be measured in its vitality and place attachment - its connection with the user. The lecture will present a proposition for creating dynamic and rewarding places.
