2016 International Festival of Landscape Architecture

2016 International Festival of Landscape Architecture
 Not In My Backyard

Final Release tickets now available

Adventures into the profoundly frightening, deeply uncertain and yet somehow incredibly optimistic landscapes of the 21st century

At the same time that AILA celebrates its 50th year (1966-2016) the International Commission on Stratigraphy will formally announce the dawn of the Anthropocene: a new era in which the earth's systems are determined by human activity. 

The conference argues that the major dynamics of the 21st century; global urbanization and climate change are landscape architectural in nature; they are interrelated issues that landscape architects can and must address with both scientific knowledge and artistic imagination. The conference examines this proposition with specific regard to the Australasian region and does so through 7 themes; New Stories, New Practices, New Techniques, New Signs, New Cities, New Natures and New Territories. 

The conference, which will incorporate the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) Asia-Pacific regional Congress, celebrates 50 years of landscape architecture in Australia and marks the beginning of a new year. 

Date: Friday 28 October & Saturday 29 October 2016
Time: 9am - 6pm
