Emily Paech

Landscape Architect

After being awarded masters of architecture, Emily specialised in cultural heritage and interpretation. She has extensive experience designing public realm interventions that reveal site-specific histories, provoke conversation and inspire interaction. Recently pivoting into landscape architectural practice, working with TCL's Adelaide studio Emily is deep-diving into the new challenge.

A creative director of unsettling Queenstown for La Biennale di Venezia, Emily is passionate about developing dialogue around First Nations knowledge and the built environment. The exhibition responded directly to Lesley Lokko’s Laboratory of the Future prompt by grappling with the legacy of colonisation on people, nature and land.

She relishes every opportunity to collaborate meaningfully with kindness and respect, seeking underlying narratives of the place, and teasing out unexpected and new experiences; at the same time delivering outcomes that are pragmatic, accessible and appropriate. Living and working on un-ceded land she believes it is critical to invest time and energy into learning about, and engaging with, place and Country.
