Commencing in the Old Senate Room of the Irwin Street Building, located on the western side of James Oval at the Crawley Campus of the University, Gillian will speak about the Campus landscape history then guide a walk to relevant parts of the Campus.
Crawley Campus is notable as a place of exceptional cultural heritage significance, rich in the history of landscape development and buildings integrated in an exceptional manner whereby each draws inseparably upon the presence of the other.
Gillian Lilleyman is a Landscape Historian of note, responsible for the identification and documentation of the landscape component of the Conservation Management Plan prepared in December 2008 for the Crawley Campus. Her knowledge of this special place is extensive. Gillian is co-author of ‘A Landscape for Learning: a History of the Grounds of the University of Western Australia’ and a contributor to the forthcoming centennial history of the University.
