Landscape Notes

Observations of places and things in a disconnected postmodern world

George Bolt Memorial Drive

This fringe landscape is adjacent to a large shopping precinct. I stood at the spot where the asphalt finished in the carpark and admired the Eucalyptus gums in the distance while thinking about the connectivity of these two contrasting landscapes. A pathway enables people to move freely from one landscape to the other, and provides an opportunity for users to experience and to ponder these two distinctly different places.

Two Chairs and Accordian Room Divider

To create this room, someone, about 50 years ago, presumably an architect, has laboured over drawings and applied creative thought by the application of physical and mental energy to find a desirable outcome that delivers a functional and aesthetically pleasing space for learning. Thereafter, a steady stream of people have used this space, been influenced by it, and have responded to it.
