Sharon Mackay and Diana Snape have collaborated on numerous design, landscape architecture and city-making projects. This is their first book. They have shaped planning and design policies, curated exhibitions and events, and were the inaugural creative directors of the International Festival of Landscape Architecture. Sharon is a landscape architect and has been a presenter on Australia by Design: Landscapes on Channel TEN.

Diana is trained in architecture and urban design policy and is the host of podcast series Architecture Insights for the NSW Architects Registration Board. Both are passionate about design and well-designed places - especially where design makes space for people to eat, drink and be merry together.

His work is in high demand across Australia and internationally and is featured widely in magazines and books.
