Barwick & Associates was a Landscape Architect business created and run by Patricia Barwick Patricia Barwick trained in architecture and landscape planning at the Tasmanian College of Advanced Education, where she went on to lecture in design, urban planning, design methods and drafting. She worked in Hobart and Sydney and travelled in North America, Europe and Asia before beginning her own landscape architecture practice in 1983. Barwick & Associates focussed on institutional land planning, including school, hospital, army barracks, and church environments. In 1990 Patricia began work as a consultant for Greening Australia (Tas), championing the improvement of visual landscapes in Tasmania's roadways. Much of her subsequent work took on a grassroots approach of training and consultation with the road and utility workers responsible for producing large scale landscapes, to effect change in the management of landscapes and preserve local vegetation. Patricia's expertise as a consultant incorporated an awareness of the historical and cultural and ecological values of landscapes as well as their appearance. Patricia was a national councillor and secretary for the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA), and President of AILA Tasmania. She was a secretary and committee member of the Association of Consulting Architects, Tasmania, and active in church groups.
