Paul Verity, Syrinx’s Senior Landscape Architect / Urban Designer AILA, will be giving a presentation on the Greater Curtin Living Knowledge Stream’s integrated research and design process at the 10th International Urban Design Conference, taking place in the Gold Coast (QLD) 13-14 November.
Syrinx has had the pleasure of collaborating with Elder Dr Noel Nannup and Jenny Hunter of sync7 to develop The Living Knowledge Stream design guidance document for Curtin University. The document is a groundbreaking strategic framework that integrates Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) with contemporary ecological science and green/blue infrastructure.
Applying a cross disciplinary research approach, the design process interrogated analysis of historical and present day natural ecology combined with TEK to generate a unified, logical and modern interpretive design framework to guide future development (landscape, public domain and built form) across the Curtin University campus.
Once built, this first-of-a-kind project will offer day-to-day users of the site a way to connect with a TEK understanding of water and ecology in a contemporary urban environment.
