Hassell backs 202020 Vision urban green space initiative

Hassell backs 202020 Vision urban green space initiative
March 10, 2014

Hassell, one of Australia's largest architecture firms, has signed on to the 202020 Vision - a national initiative that aims to increase urban green space in Australia by 20% by 2020.

Currently the campaign is mapping the most innovative and inspiring urban green spaces, while quantifying their value and positive impacts, to inspire governments, developers and communities to create more green space in cities.

Hassell has joined the vision to help broaden awareness of the wide-ranging benefits best-practice urban green space can deliver.

Explaining the move, Hassell Head of Landscape Architecture Angus Bruce stated "Hassell embraces the objectives of the 202020 Vision and is firmly committed to delivering environmentally conscious design solutions that enable sustainable development in all of its forms.

"We are proud to have played a pivotal role in some of Australia's pioneering green infrastructure projects, and in the enrichment and rehabilitation of our urban ecologies.

"Our practice is continuing this legacy, advancing and advocating sustainable development through projects like the recently completed the Burnley Living Roofs a world-class research and education facility, designed in collaboration with The Melbourne University, which is being used as a living forum to demonstrate how green transformations can be achieved on our urban rooftops."
