Now for the non-boring version...
Amalie grew up in a coastal cane-farming city. Her dad was a draughtsman, custodian of a printing machine that glowed purple at night, amongst other treasures. Her mum was (and still is) the curator of a vast collection of foliage plants, now accompanied by a growing range of succulents. With such a pedigree it was inevitable that Amalie would pursue first architecture and then landscape architecture.
When not speaking in the third person Amalie is dead keen on lino printmaking, films, cooking, eating, napping, reading, Scandi noir, and travelling.
But most of all I love being able to use my design skills to work with like-minded people on projects that bring health and beauty to the planet.
Amalie is a passionate designer, committed to achieving positive change through good design. As a landscape architect, urban designer and architect she brings a broad perspective to private and public realm projects. Over the past 20 years she has worked across many project types and scales, from public art and furniture, to residential developments and parklands, resort hotels, commercial precincts and transport infrastructure.
In 2012 Amalie established Landscapology, a design studio specialising in bespoke landscape and integrated architectural design. She is particularly interested in exploring notions of beauty, detail, journey and delight.
In 2007 Amalie won the mecu travel Bursary, awarded by Queensland's Centre for Subtropical Design. She travelled to Colombia to observe the changing role of city parks, and was subsequently commissioned by CSIRO Publishing to develop Future Park: imagining tomorrow’s urban parks. It shows how cities, councils and communities have responded with innovative thinking to the challenges of delivering high quality parks and people places, as land in our cities comes under increasing pressure.
In addition to her practice Amalie tutors in landscape and architecture design at the Queensland University of Technology, regularly mentors candidates and sits on the assessment panels for landscape architectural registration in Queensland. She is a proud member of the the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, and has served as Queensland President and a member of the Board.
In 2018 she was elected a Fellow of the AILA.
A landscape architect, Claudia is skilled at visually communicating complex design concepts to a wide audience and is able to translate ideas into achievable outcomes.
She is a past Board member of the UR<BNE> Collective, helping organise many public space activation events, and Co-Founder of Brisbane Style Over Speed, which organises social bike rides to demonstrate how easy and fun it is to cycle in ‘normal’ clothes.
She pursued diverse experience working in horticulture, farms and community gardens across three continents, and brings experience in community engagement and participatory public programming to the team.
Claud is also a tutor in Landscape Architectural Design at QUT.
Christina is both the Marketing Director of a national plant source database created for the nursery and associated landscape industries and a practicing landscape architect.
She is a recognised advanced tree specialist, with her extensive professional network utilised to source plant material for projects both commercial and domestic throughout Queensland, from nurseries across Australia.
She deals daily with growers of high quality plants, and is well respected by nursery staff for her extensive product knowledge, landscape construction companies for her ability to communicate with a wide range of suppliers and landscape designers for understanding the concept being delivered and fitting appropriate plants into the context.
A current board member of the Nursery and Garden Industry Queensland (NGIQ), Christina is regularly involved in the “bigger picture” of the amenity horticulture industry. The NGIQ are facilitators of Queensland Garden Expo, the largest plant based exhibition in the state, and as a board member, Christina has experience with this event on an operational level.
