Overview

Highly regarded in the field of arts and urban design, Paul Carter is well-known for his public space designs, most notably Melbourne's Federation Square, Sydney's Golden Grove, and the Darwin waterfront cultural facility. In this book, Paul Carter 'maps' the Mallee region in Victoria, Australia, exploring the visible and invisible aspects of place. Using the region as an example, Carter digs deep, exploring and analyzing literature, art, oral history, and the historical record. The result is a pastiche of complex understanding that brings to life the Mallee area and presents it in the past, present, and future. Ground Truthing offers a unique take on natural history, mapping, and urban planning.
