Re-viewing’ the Meehan Plan of 1811

Like the architecture that informs it, townscape is particular to location. The illustrated talk will consider the mediating role of landform to settlement origins ‘at the River Derwent’, leading to the formative plan produced by James Meehan (1811) for (Central) Hobart. Architect Leigh Woolley will discuss how the result continues to inform architectural outcomes and townscape identity, while also revealing the place in which habitation occurs. Leigh is a Tasmanian Architect with over thirty-five years professional experience as an architectural and urban design practitioner. He is the recipient of numerous professional design awards across these disciplines. He is a Churchill Fellow and Adjunct Professor in Architecture and Design (UTAS) and practices from Hobart.
