LWCircus International Referent for Australia

Sally CRAVEN | Landscape Architect| LWC-IRAU

Sally is a landscape architect exploring creative and sustainable design solutions in complex urban environments. She has a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Adelaide, 2009. Her homeland of South Australia is the driest state in the driest continent in the world, and as a result Sally has developed specialised knowledge of water sensitive urban design and environmental sustainability to adapt to these conditions. Since 2010 Sally has worked for Australian landscape architecture and urban design studio Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL) undertaking an investigation into the poetic expression of the Australian Landscape and contemporary culture. This has permeated through TCL’s design work in a multiplicity of public settings from urban waterfronts to desert walking trails. In each case the detailed exploration of context, site and community have informed outcomes and enriched the patterning and detail of built landscapes. Sally was the winner of the Hassell Travelling Scholarship – a national graduate prize which recognises landscape architecture students who show outstanding potential for future contribution to the profession. The scholarship was used to travel to the Nordic countries of Sweden, Norway and Denmark to seek design inspiration. During this time Sally spent time living and working in Oslo, Norway for international design studio Snøhetta in 2013. In 2015 Sally participated in LandWorks-Sardinia. She is part of LWCircus as International Referent for Australia since the Program’s foundation in 2016.
