Grand Designs Live

The RMIT Landscape Architecture students were delighted with the positive response to their work from the public, and especially from the design celebrities Peter Maddsion from Grand Designs Australia, Kate St James from Universal Magazines, Charlie Albone from Selling Homes Australia, and the super engaging Kevin McCloud from Grand Designs UK. The design studio course entitled 'Aggregated Natures' challenged students to design innovative landscape works for an indoor environment that would create specific ecologies attuned to specific plant types. Constructing the works at 1:1 scale was also an opportunity for the students to celebrate their digital modelling skills with RMIT School of Architecture + Design's rapid prototyping technlogies.
