The 2015 Festival of Landscape Architecture: This Public Life will be hosted in Melbourne. Melburnians love the city's vibrant energy, restaurants, café-filled laneways, cool bars, galleries, spacious parks and village-like inner suburbs, each with its own special character. Melbourne is a young city and as such it never sits still. Modern, cutting-edge designs add to the fascinating mix of heritage architecture and ensure the skyline is constantly changing. Melbourne is about lifestyle and has been ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities. The Economist Intelligence Unit currently considers Melbourne the most liveable city in the world. This annual yearly report assesses which locations around the world provide the best or the worst living conditions according to dozens of indicators in five broad categories of stability, healthcare, culture & environment, education and infrastructure.

With our members, we anticipate and develop a leading position on issues of concern in landscape architecture. Alongside government and allied professions, we work to improve the design, planning and management of the natural and built environment.
