Forecast Festival discusses landscape architecture in Brisbane
Bringing together designers, thinkers, innovators and collaborators, the inaugural Forecast Festival of Landscape Architecture will be inspiring industry conversation at the State Library of Queensland from October 16–18.
Organised by the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA), the program of events is designed to engage and inspire those in the landscape architecture industry, and encourage the interaction of likeminded people in the profession. The festival will be centred around the State Library of Queensland, and feature a wide range of events over the three days.
This year’s Forecast Festival will include studio tours, panel discussions and guided tours, including Come Back to My Place – a series of eight free discussion-based events allowing the general public and festivalgoers to go behind the scenes of studios and project sites. Focusing on Brisbane’s landscape architecture, Come Back to My Place will allow open discussion on topics ranging from edible infrastructure to improving water quality and safety, all within an intimate environment. The site tours include the Translational Research Institute’s subtropical garden, designed by Wilson Architects and Donovan Hill (in association), and studios include Lat27, AECOM and Cardno. Only a limited selection of tickets remain, so make sure you register via the Forecast website to get your hands on one.
