A new environmental design: Sustainable place making in postcolonial Australia
Abstract:This paper seeks to expand on environmental design understood in purely instrumentalist terms. It argues that current environmental emergencies in Australia and elsewhere are requiring alternative strategies of response, and proposes the terrain of poetic work as offering new insights in the field of sustainability practice. It draws upon two place-making projects to advance a theory of environmental design that is poetically guided.
