Reimagining landscapes

Victoria University of Wellington masters student Hannah Carson has been awarded the inaugural New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects Vectorworks Landmark Student scholarship, for her strong focus on expressing Māori oral narratives through the use of augmented reality. The scholarship was established to support those studying the profession in New Zealand, where their research promotes the profession or actively contributes to new knowledge in the discipline of landscape architecture.

Damien van Brandenburg of Architecture van Brandenburg has a vision to redevelop the Dunedin waterfront. He's not alone in this plan, with locals and key stakeholders throwing their support behind it. In July, Regional Economic Development Minister Shane Jones announced a cash injection towards the project. Dunedin City Council will receive $820,000 to complete a full feasibility assessment and development of a business case for the Dunedin Waterfront Project, which will include engineering, environmental and commercial feasibility.
