The Biocity Studio conducts research through collaborations and partnerships with various private, government and academic organisations.¬† We regularly conduct short courses, workshops and presentations. ¬†Our partnership with the University of New South Wales resulted in the establishment of an annual Biocity Studio subject in the School of the Built Environment.¬† This Studio won the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects New South Wales Research and Communication Award in 2007.
This cross disciplinary Studio challenges students to rethink conventional fossil fuel based urban design, policy and planning in order to tackle the spectre of environmental, geopolitical and cultural crises expected with climate change and peak oil. Premised on the idea that cities are living, metabolising biotopes whose futures are dependent on embracing wholistic bio-cultural programs, participants are required to research, debate and present design and policy solutions for sustaining cities.
The following presentations are illustrative of the studio outputs.
