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.
