This project includes the design and documentation of the initial stages of the Kirinari Street Shared Way at the entry to the Bruce Campus. It also included the new Vice Chancellors Green. The design is representative of the character of the wider campus of native grassland and extensive plantings of black trunked trees. The project demonstrates the incremental implementation of a new planting structure of the black grid and the integration of existing vegetation within the new landscape character.
New plantings of black trunked trees define a broad avenue shared by the existing street alignment and a realigned path within a generous verge of native grasses.
Existing vegetation is mapped and the landscape developed through succession planting of the black trunked tree grid and native grasses.
This broad avenue has the dimension and scale appropriate for a vehicular entrance to the campus.
