Kate Church is a lecturer in the Bachelor of Landscape Architectural Design at RMIT University.
Kate's research foregrounds open structures to register and explore the performative materiality of the land. Her approach situates the landscape as a medium in perpetual motion, always in transition and therefore constantly awaiting change. This framing of the landscape engages with Landscape Architecture as an architecture of flows, foregrounding matter in motion and the experience of the moving body.
She is a member of Urban Interior, an interdisciplinary research group, and Performance Lab (Pflab), and is a current PhD candidate within the Performative Creative Practice stream at RMIT.
Her published work appears in Kerb Journal, New American Notes Online, Landscape Architecture Australia, Exposure/00: Design Research in Landscape Architecture (2012) and Urban Interior: Informal Explorations, Interventions and Occupations (2011). Her work has been included in State of Design Festivals and has been exhibited at Guilford Lane Gallery and Field 36 Gallery.
