Lecture notes and research on landscape architecture

Folders 6-10
Typed and handwritten lecture notes and papers on topics including an introduction to landscape architecture; the history of landscape architecture; garden designs from around the world (China, Persia, France, England, Japan, Holland, Spain, Italy); elements of landscape design; botany; plant care; an ecological approach to landscape architecture; flowering times of plants common in Brisbane; and Australian plant life. The lectures were created and collected by Malcolm Bunzli during his career as the originator then coordinator and lecturer of the Graduate Diploma in Landscape Architecture course at the Queensland Institute of Technology (now known as the Queensland University of Technology or QUT). Many of the lecture notes are accompanied by hand-drawn designs and diagrams in pen and pencil, many colour. One pamphlet and various research articles and magazine cuttings, both originals and photocopies, are interspersed among the papers and were likely used as reference materials as some contain handwritten pen annotations. Most papers are undated but were probably compiled between 1966 to 1970; some are dated 1968 and 1969. Also included is some typed correspondence and typed and handwritten exam papers relating to Malcolm's appointment as an examiner for the Landscape Design (Architecture II) subject as part of the University of Queensland Annual Examinations between 1967 and 1969.

Folder 11
Malcolm's handwritten notes and collected course materials from his studies for the Diploma in Landscape Design course at Durham University, dated from 1961 to 1963, and possibly used by Malcolm as reference material when planning the landscape architecture graduate course in Queensland.
