Working with community groups in managing the cultural landscape
Thomas, Glenn S. (1996) Working with community groups in managing the cultural landscape. Landscape Australia, 18(3), pp. 216-222.
This paper draws on recent postgraduate landscape architecture student work at QUT. It involved a variety of townscape design studies which dealt with three dilemmas: managing the conflict in lifestyle expectations between established and immigrant populations in country towns being overtaken by urban expansion; dealing with the impact of increased urbanisation on the layers of the cultural landscape; and ameliorating conflicts between the motor vehicle and other social functions of urban environments. The programs required working directly with community representatives including elected and salaried members of the local authority and diverse organisations and interest groups. These programs provide a challenging learning experience; assist in educating and empowering community groups to make more informed decisions; and increase awareness of the relevance of the design professions.
