What I've Learnt - Paul Bangay

WHAT I'VE LEARNT

For 30 years Paul Bangay has fulfilled his clients’ aspirations for gardens that are expressive of the timeless elegance, and classic simplicity for which he is internationally renowned.Widely regarded as the foremost garden designer in Australia today, Bangay’s clients include a roster of the most prominent figures in business and culture. His extensive list of projects span private and public commissions in Australia and New Zealand, as well as further afield in Europe, North America and the West Indies.“To live a life led by the seasons is to live one closely tied to a garden, and Stonefields is mine”, says Paul. Pauls celebrated Victorian property, Stonefields, has now been under his expert care for 15 years. Today, the garden is mature and more beautiful than ever – from the vibrant autumn colours in the woodland, and evocative dormancy of winter, to the jubilant flowering of the crab apple in springtime and perpetual rich harvest of produce. In his new book “Stonefields by the Seasons,” Paul takes the reader through the garden at different times of year to highlight the design principles he has applied to various parts of it, and the wide-ranging inspirations for his choices. Along the way, he gives practical advice on seasonal planting and outlines essential quarterly tasks.Recently when visiting the stunning stonefields property, I loved the symmetry, yet free form style of the sumptuous gardens Paul has nurtured, and was struck by the calm, peaceful aura - a true sanctuary in the rolling hills of Woodend, Victoria.CREDITS:Executive Producer & host: Deborah Blashki-Marks (mindfilmandpublishing.com.au) Podcast Audio Producer:Sophie Jackson (Soundstreet.com.au) Artwork:Sam Moses (www.samanthamoses.com)Original music:Jonah OrbachVoice Recording:Matia Marks Design:Rachel Mcarthy (rachelmccarthy@live.com.au

MTalks—The Making of MPavilion 2015 w Robert Buckingham, Tony Isaacson, Paul Bangay • 15 Dec 2015

MPavilion

“How could we create the feeling, the experience, the sensation of a tree canopy, but in a completely abstract way, with man-made materials?” In an interview for Architectural Review, Amanda Levete talked about some of the thinking and collaboration that went into AL_A’s MPavilion design. The third and final installment of MTalks in a trilogy of lunchtime conversations about this year’s MPavilion construction, and the unique puzzles faced along the way.Key players from the brief-to-build team—included MPavilion’s Robert Buckingham, Jessie French and Sam Redston, Arup’s Brendon McNiven, Kane Constructions’ Tony Isaacson and landscape designer Paul Bangay (who lent his green thumbs to MPavilion’s flower beds and perennial borders)— talked us through their material, technological and botanical decisions, offering us a behind-the-scenes look at everything that goes into designing, building and wiring up a high-tech, weather-responsive and modular temporary structure.Why did Paul choose to plant salvia around AL_A’s structure? How did engineers from Arup tackle the design challenge of seamlessly incorporating sound and light? And how do Sam and the MPavilion production team make sure our nightly Sunset Ritual plays at the exact moment of sundown each evening? Pull up a pew under the (thirteen big and thirty small) petals on the first three Tuesdays in December, and discover the ins and outs of AL_A’s enchanting and boundary-pushing digital forest canopy.
