The Invisible Landscape

Environments 22 July 2011 | 10.00am

The 2011 State of Design Festival opened in Melbourne on Wednesday 20th July and this year Arup is presenting The Invisible Landscape.

The Invisible Landscape is a project to source people’s stories about the city’s green infrastructure so that we can build a broad picture of how the community values the the city’s green spaces.

Using the website people can share thoughts, comments, information and images about the city’s landscape, discover other people’s secret green gems, or even reveal locations that could be improved to enhance the liveability of the city.

All of this is also available for the iPhone through a web app. Just navigate to The Invisible Landscape to launch the app. People be able to upload comments, information and images about their favourite green spaces around our city.

We tested the app with a guided ‘walk-shop’ along the Yarra River last Saturday to be among the first to use the Invisible Landscape app. Participants will be able to upload comments, information and images about their favourite green spaces around our city.
