Studio REDE

Research Assistant

"Rede is a landscape studio that explores intersections between ecology, culture and conservation through a reading of the the bio-cultural landscape. The studio deploys design as an agent for creative ecological disturbance by exploring symbiotic ecological relationships. We look to the vernacular landscapes of indigenous ecosystem dwellers, learning lessons and reinterpreting how landscapes and ecosystems can be successfully manipulated and managed through age old techniques that are inherently ecologically sustainable." - Julia Watson
