Outerspace Landscape Architects

Marti Fooks is a Director of Outerspace Landscape Architects based in Melbourne. She has extensive experience both locally and internationally working on a number of highly acclaimed and complex projects. Marti’s skills range from conceptual thinking to project management but she is most well known for her design activism. As her ongoing passion for landscape architecture remains in its potential to advocate of equity, combat the climate crises and challenge the status quo.

Along with her team, she was the winner of the Future Park Design Ideas Competition that was presented by the University of Melbourne, in partnership with Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA). The highly acclaimed proposition used the figure of a 9.3 percent gender pay gap as a form generator and basis for claiming new parkland.

Marti has specialist qualifications in safer by design and the potential of places to reduce the risk of harm for visitors and communities; particularity for those less able to defend themselves.

Marti teaches in the Masters of Landscape Architecture program at RMIT University, Melbourne.
