“We were so impressed with the quality of the submissions - we have some very talented landscape architects coming out of Deakin.
The designs make clever use of space and increase the productivity and sustainability of our inner city landscape.
I'm looking forward to seeing all of the designs coming to life over the next few months.
Geelong’s northerly aspect gives us a major opportunity to lead the way with this and hopefully it encourages other local buildings to get on board.”
