Think Outside with Amalie Wright

Amalie Wright is a landscape architect and architect. Her design studio, Landscapology, helps passionate and curious people create beautiful and resilient landscapes. Her book, Future Park: imagining tomorrow’s urban parks, was published in September. She hopes you’ll read it and never think about your local park in the same way again.

Amalie Wright

Hello, I’m Amalie Wright. Thank-you for allowing me to introduce myself.

I am a landscape architect, architect and author, passionate about achieving positive change through great design.

Prior to establishing Landscapology I held senior roles in international design practices, working on projects in Australia and overseas.

My work has included boutique waterfront residential developments, integrated art, transport infrastructure, commercial and hotel developments, and many other public realm projects for clients including Mirvac, Lend Lease, Brookfield Multiplex, and local and state governments.

I currently serve on the Queensland Executive of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, and tutor in landscape architecture at the Queensland University of Technology.

For as long as I can remember I’ve been drawing, colouring, reading and creating.

Mum curated vast collections of foliage plants, books and magazines – still does. Dad had precious pens we weren’t allowed to touch and a plan printing machine that glowed purple at night.

Those early influences started my ongoing journey through design.

I draw by hand and love pens, pencils and relief printmaking.

I collect seed pods, and beautiful bark and leaves.

I am drawn to pattern, detail and beauty.

I love to read and research and figure things out.

And I love using my skills to help passionate and curious people achieve their dreams and aspirations.

Sadly Amalie has had to cancel her presentation at our next Think Outside event. We are now pleased to welcome Sidonie Carpenter who will ponder the question ‘how might we design a model of sustainable eco-tourism?’ on Tuesday 15 October. Tickets are FREE and still available through Eventbrite.
