Undertaken as part of the 4th year Landscape Studio 8: Urban Landscape Design, the ‘Connecting Parramatta’ project aims to create an inclusive and resilient neighbourhood. Key features of the scheme include an increase in green infrastructure supported by a water sensitive urban design network to help cool and irrigate public green spaces, and an emphasis on walkability. The model shown here highlights the main pedestrian zone centred around a large bio-retention basin.
