Dual Trajectories: Autopsy and Speculations

Vladimir Sitta is a Czech landscape architect based in Australia. He studied landscape architecture at Mendel University in Brno and completed his degree in 1972. After working for a number of years in Czechoslovakia and West Germany, he moved to Australia in 1981. After five years, he established Terragram, a landscape architecture firm. Later in 1998, he co-founded Room 4.1.3 with Richard Weller. The firm seeks an interdisciplinary approach, combining the academic and professional, in creating innovative, even iconoclastic, landscape designs. The firm has worked on projects such as the Garden of Australian Dreams at the National Museum of Australia, Canberra and Fusionpolis, Singapore. Sitta won the President's Award of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, 2002. He is the author of The Culture of Landscape Architecture (Edge Publishing, 1994).
