Project title: Landscape Design Standard
Project aim: To develop a landscape design standard for all RMIT University outdoor spaces. RMIT University’s Design Standards is a set of specifications that set out the minimum requirements for the design and construction of all RMIT facilities. The specification guidelines address key landscape design features that will help shape more resilient campuses. There is a gap for design of outdoor spaces at RMIT, and this project will provide guidance when designing and specifying any new or refurbished outdoor spaces.
