Bridget Keane is a lecturer in the Landscape Architecture program.
Her research and practice are concerned with Landscape as a dynamic material system and considers ways to generate dynamic modes of analysis and production of landscape. Projects are developed through the direct engagement with material production, processes and site logics. She has exhibited work as part of the State of Design and High Views festivals and published in Kerb and Jola Journals and her design work received a commendation the by AILA Unlandscaped Competition and published in Landscape Architecture Australia.
Current research investigates concepts of nature through design research that emphasises complex systems, materiality and representation in the formation of the landscape.
