INTERNATIONAL ARBORETUM

2005 | Civic | Canberra ACT | 240 ha

The Arboretum and gardens in Canberra, set on a 240 hectare burnt out bush site, were designed to act in concert with the landform, its micro and regional climates. The ground is a moving sea of dots (tree trunks) that form a myriad of sites and experiences. A pearl necklace of flaming red trees wraps the undulating site with sculptural presence and identity. Farmers Hill is left naked and exposed except for the old pines left standing after the great fires. The site houses semi underground facilities and an open amphitheatre.
