Peter Haack is one of the country’s most experienced landscape architects and urban designers. He has a passion for highly creative design solutions that improve functional, aesthetic, social and environmental outcomes.

For more than 30 years he’s led private and public sector landscape architecture, urban design and landscape planning projects – including transport, energy infrastructure and major urban renewal projects, conducting visual assessments of wind farms, and developing open space strategies and park master plans. He heads Urbis’ Design Studio in Melbourne.

He led the urban and public realm design for Melbourne Metro Rail, one of Victoria’s largest public transport projects; the urban design and landscape architecture for the Peninsula Link freeway; and the preparation of a master plan for Living Links, an environmental and recreational corridor in the Dandenong Creek catchment, which received an award from the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects.

Now, more than ever, we must work with our clients to ensure our design responses and projects create high-amenity, sustainable places that improve our urban environment for future generations.
