Don’t miss the Outdoor Design & Innovation Expo, showcasing the changing face of South Australian landscape design and outdoor living.
Making the most of ‘the outdoors’ is an important aspect of South Australian culture. And now, more than ever, it is becoming an integral consideration for architects, builders and homeowners, in the design of urban homes and landscapes. This is due to our state’s growing focus on sustainable building and living, as well as a cultural consensus that ‘outdoor living’ is an essential factor in a balanced lifestyle.
To celebrate and encourage a forward-thinking approach to landscape design and outdoor living in South Australia, an inaugural Outdoor Design & Innovation Expo will be held on Sunday, August 12, 2012 from 12noon to 3pm. Sponsored by Maison Design (an Adelaide Icon, providing ideas and inspiration for many of Adelaide’s finest homes for over a decade), the inaugural event aims to educate and inspire the design industry and the general public.
Attendees will stroll through outdoor displays constructed by some of South Australia’s best landscapers and designers. They will also discover the latest and greatest in landscaping concepts, ideas, trends and materials, through presentations by landscapers, designers and leading manufacturers/suppliers.
The afternoon will include the Australian launch of:
• EcoTop – A revolutionary range of ‘pollution-eating, self-cleaning’ pavers and walling blocks, and
• Green Block – A vertical garden-growing walling system
The launch of EcoTop will mark the launch of the photocatalysis industry in Australia - an industry that has long been embraced by Europe, Japan and the USA, due to the functional and environmental benefits of photocatalytic products.
The Outdoor Design & Innovation Expo is a free event, open to all, and will be held at the premises and rear show-yard of Maison Design, 57 Rundle Street, Kent Town (with parking along Rundle Street). Visitors can enjoy wood oven pizza tastings and a sausage sizzle.
Members of the design and landscaping community and the general public are invited to come along and enjoy a day of fun, education and inspiration.
