Anderson is Senior Lecturer and Program Director of the Masters of Landscape Architecture and is the coordinator of the Professional Practice stream.
Charles Anderson is a Landscape Architect and Artist with over thirty years experience making and exhibiting work in Australia and around the world. He has a distinguished reputation as an artist and designer, and has received numerous awards for his work, from both within and without the landscape architectural profession.
Charles’ research foregrounds the fertile character of collaborative, interdisciplinary, and process based modes of practice. Advocating new methods of approach and of attentiveness, and exploring new generative procedures, he argues that process thinking is not simply an operational stance, but an ethical position. Taking seriously the relationship between process thinking and place making Charles’ research advocates a mode of place making which, rather than reproduce planned environments as systems of control, configures place as a discursive contested meshwork of movement, encounter, and exchange.
In the School of Architecture and Design at RMIT University he is also leader of the X-Field Research Group, and a member of the Speculative Architecture Laboratory as well as the Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory (SIAL).
Anderson is founding director of Stutterheim / Anderson Landscape Architecture (SAALA), an award winning design practice based in Melbourne, and is a registered member of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects.
