Julian Raxworthy is a registered landscape architect. Initially working as a landscape tradesman, he studied at Ryde Horticulture TAFE, until 1992. He later graduated with his undergraduate degree (with honours) and research masters degree (by design), both from RMIT, Australia. He is currently completing his PhD with the University of Queensland, concerning change in landscape architecture. Here Julian discusses the creative utilisation of low rental properties in his presentation “Detroit in a World Heritage Area“ (from PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 2).

In their presentation (in Czech, from PKN Ústí nad Labem Vol. 2), Boris Kaňka and Vendula Urbanová talk about the annual architecture student project competition at TU Liberec called “Ještěd F Kleci.”

We end the week with no new additions to the Tumblr blog, so instead we highlight the poster you see above, for the upcoming PKN Gisborne Vol. 10, which is set for September 21.
