Overview: 

Australia's most awarded landscape architecture and urban design firm, Taylor Cullity Lethlean illustrates 18 of their leading projects, featuring critical essays from international contributors. Since 1989, TCL has undertaken an investigation into the poetic expression of the Australian landscape and contemporary culture. This has permeated their design work in a multiplicity of public settings from urban waterfronts to desert walking trails. In each case, the detailed exploration of context, site, and community have informed outcomes and enriched the patterning and detail of built landscapes. Entering into the Taylor Cullity Lethlean workspace, on is drawn into an exchange between the collaborative space of the design studio and the wider Australian landscapes of cities, suburbs, the outback, and the infrastructures that define them.
