WoodSolutions Series: Webinar Two

Join us for this CPD webinar presented by National Supporting Corporate Partner, WoodSolutions Australia. 

AILA and WoodSolutions have teamed up to co-host a 5-part webinar series focussing specifically on landscape architects and their use and specification of wood products. Featuring industry expert speakers, we cover a range of key topics including timber as a resource and its positive carbon benefits in a zero-emissions future world. We also explore timber durability, timber preservation and external finishes, the use of wood in bushfire prone areas, as well as case studies of some of AILA member’s flagship landscape architectural projects.

Webinar two: AILA Case Studies – Showcasing the Innovative Use of Timber. With Jerry de Gryse – Director, Inspiring Place, Luke Smith, Senior Architect and Discipline Lead NSW/ACT, Arup

What would landscape architecture be without plants, trees and wood and timber products? The landscape architecture fraternity continues to amaze and astound with their creative and inspirational design, and their use of forest and wood products. In this special case study focused webinar, two AILA members showcase and discuss some of their favourite projects.

Jerry de Gryse, a Director at Inspiring Place, will talk about the firm’s unique blend of skills across landscape architecture, tourism, recreation, environmental management and community engagement, and their philosophy behind the selection of the timber within their projects. A range of projects will be discussed including the design and timber specification for the award-winning Lily Pads, a feature of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.

Designed and inspired by nature, and as a tangential extension of the natural coastline, was the inspiration for the award-winning Terrigal Boardwalk and Rockpool . Arup’s multidisciplinary team developed the design which provides a multitude of social, health, environmental and economic benefits for the local community. Senior Architect and Discipline Lead NSW/ACT at ARUP, Luke Smith, will discuss the project’s methodology and approach, and specifically to Arup’s philosophy to timber use and how this is embedded within Arup’s approach to sustainable projects.
