2021 Festival of Landscape Architecture: Spectacle and Collapse
// Festival website is now live //

13 - 16 October 2021 | Hybrid event, from Perth, Australia

AILA is working with the National Board and Creative Directors on the 2021 Festival of Landscape Architecture. This hybrid event will allow attendees to join face-to-face in Perth or as a virtual attendee. The new format will make the event truly accessible to all our members to engage, learn and connect via a hybrid event.

Presentations, discussions and events based around the theme, Spectacle & Collapse, will inspire participants to be active agents of change through dynamic design processes and creative solutions to difficult problems.

More and more of our society is drawn to experience and understand the world around us as spectacle – consumable and pleasurable, dramatic and superficial, speculative and temporary; image obsessed. At the same time, we are threatened with the collapse of ecosystems, critical to the survival and vitality of communities and cultures. Yet acting on this threat requires depth of systems thinking and practice and an appreciation of prolonged time, large scales and broad context.  Landscape architects are skilled in these modes of thought and practice – how can we better move between image making and contextual reality?  Is our focus on spectacle obscuring our vision and reducing our capacity to act in response to collapse?

The 2021 AILA National Landscape Architecture Awards will be announced during the Festival on Thursday, 14 October.
