Audio work Length: 38 minutes In 1927, while in Canberra for the opening of the Parliament House building, the then Duke of York planted a symbolic English Oak. Recently, 90-year-old Aldo Giurgola, the architect of the city’s new Parliament House, designed a new landscaping for the plantation of which this oak tree was a part. In Amongst the Oaks we learn how trees inform Giurgola’s design philosophy and bring poetry to place. Commissioned for the City of Trees project for the centenary of Canberra, Australia 2013; work made in collaboration with Jonquil Panting. First presented in ‘City of Trees’ at The National Library of Australia, Canberra, Australia (2013).
