Architect Leigh Woolley speaks about the relationship between place and urban planning, a topic that has proven to be of great interest to Hobartians this year. In Leigh’s words, “Shared, undeveloped landform horizons define Hobart as ‘a small city in a large landscape’. In seeking to ensure the topography of the city remains intelligible, and in believing that the experience of place should inform its urban planning, I will present an illustrated talk considering the place of settlement to the form that Central Hobart and Sullivans Cove is becoming.“
Leigh Woolley Architect FRAIA is a Tasmanian architect and urban design consultant.
