TCL to host discussion on the future of botanic gardens as part of Melbourne Design Week

March 2018

Public gardens offer a chance to escape frenetic urban life while also teaching of the importance of plants and ecological systems. This event explores recent developments in botanic garden design through the screening of a new 25-minute documentary Jardins Extraordinaires, which tells the story behind the Australian Garden in Cranbourne designed by TCL and Paul Thompson, followed by two presentations on new and alternative visions for public garden design.

Drinks and canapés are provided.

Professor Tim Entwisle, Director and Chief Executive of Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria
Dr Amy Hahs, Director Urban Ecology in Action, University of Melbourne
