STUDIO symbolizes the opening of a house, inclusive design conversations and sharing. It is an opportunity to go behind the scenes of local practices to collaborate, share design culture and celebrate our profession.
STUDIO is a ground up initiative by SILA landscape practices to open up their Studios to engage in conversation. It is an opportunity to inspire, share our stories and learn through conversation and debate. “Do we really know our neighbours and co-designers?”
