Philip Belesky

I’m an Associate Lecturer and Early Career Development Fellow at RMIT University in Melbourne.


My research and teaching explores how computational design can help landscape architects work with complex systems and provide them with greater agency over their digital tools.

I’m also a PhD Candidate working as part of the Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory and the Office for Urban Transformations Research. I’ve published at the ACADIA, DADA, SimAUD conferences and in the Landscape Paysages, Journal of Digital Landscape Architecture, and KERB journals. My projects have featured in Landscape Theory in Design and Beyond BIM. Prior to that I taught at the University of Melbourne and Victoria University of Wellington. I’ve also worked as a consulting computational designer in architectural practice and as a developer at web agencies and start-ups.
