Study to research sustainability benefits

7 Jun 2017

The environmental, economic and social benefits of Barangaroo Reserve will be measured and documented in an international research collaboration run by the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF).

The Washington-based Foundation has selected Research Fellows to conduct Case Study Investigations on 13 landscape projects around the world, including Sydney’s newest headland park.

The Reserve continues to go from strength to strength, winning a multitude of awards for its ground-breaking design and landscaping, and attracting more than 1.8 million visitors since it opened in August 2015.

Now Simon Kilbane and Andrew Toland from University of Technology Sydney will team up with PWP Landscape Architecture to research the sustainability benefits of the Reserve. The resulting Case Study Briefs will be published in the Foundation’s award-winning Landscape Performance Series.

The Landscape Architecture Foundation is a non-profit organisation established in 1966 and invests in research and scholarships to increase collective capacity to achieve sustainability through landscape architecture.
