Sasha Paterson

Graduate Landscape Architect

Sasha is a recent Honours Graduate of Landscape Architecture from the Queensland University of Technology. In her final year of study, Sasha was nominated for the Karl Langer Award, the HASSELL Travelling Scholarship – Robin Edmond Award, and winner of the Guymer Bailey Landscape Architecture Award in recognition of the best work responding to environmental challenges.

Sasha’s passion for the environment stems from her travels abroad in 2014, where she went on a yearlong Rotary Youth Exchange to Switzerland.​ ​Her love for involvement in local communities began while seeking to learn as much as possible about the country's culture and environment.

Her philosophy is to design and celebrate environments in the world where human and non-human are empowered to generate positive outcomes. She is particularly interested in landscape systems and the impact landscape design can have on processes in the environment, as well as challenging new ways of which Landscape Architecture can be viewed in society.

During her final semester at QUT, Sasha pursued her passion project. With influence from Bruce Pascoe and Bill Gammage, Sasha’s project challenged current land management practices in Gundaroo, New South Wales to catalyse change needed in restoring landscapes and rewilding wombats.
