Abstract

This paper reviews 3 consultancy projects of public parks in nature. The projects were completed within the last 5 years by group of academic staffs in the faculty. Public Parks design can be considered as design in the in-between territories. It hinges on the interdisciplinary relationship between two major fields, architecture and landscape architecture. Landscape architect from department of landscape architecture deals with the park and architect from the department of architecture normally deals with the related buildings. Other consultant from the faculty staff is quantity surveyor from department of quantity surveying. This collaborative effort makes Public Parks as truly the most interdisciplinary project reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the Faculty of Built Environment. The projects being reviewed here also illustrate how academic staffs in the faculty can contribute to the community through consultancy, and by so doing reflects the good relationship between the university, the city and the public.
