The Story of TractThe emergence of Tract Consultants in 1972 as Australia's first national planning, urban design and landscape design practice coincided with an unprecedented period of development in Australia.
During this thirty-year span (1972 - 2003), Australian cities were rebuilt from inside out.
In outer suburbs, new housing estates mushroomed. In old inner suburbs, modest workers' cottages were rejuvenated as desirable residences. Blighted industrial precincts were resurrected. New apartment towers rose in city centres to be inhabited by baby boomers leading the shift out of the suburbs.
Freeways, shopping centres, office towers, cemeteries, schools, universities and new public spaces were constructed or modernised.
There were also new wineries, resorts, casinos, conference centres, industrial estates, car parks, retirement villages, golf courses and parks.
Tract, by virtue of the breadth of its integrated planning and landscape design skills, and also its national presence in Australia's largest three cities, participated in this building boom to the extent that most Australians now come into contact with Tract's work on a daily basis.
Tract's story is of a leading contemporary planning and design practice built on uniting related professional disciplines that developed in isolation from one another: planning, urban design and landscape architecture.
