For many years the Royal Australian Institute of Architects published guides to good practice in a series titled BDP Environment Design Guide. BDP abbreviates Building and Design Professionals.

PaRC has obtained a list of titles as at August 2005 – there are 235 of them.


At 2020, the series is alive and well. The website of the now Australian Institute of Architects tells the story: Celebrating 25 years in 2020: BEDP to EDG to Environment. (PDF snapshot available from PaRC).


With the permission of AIA, PaRC has also re-published one, a Guide for planting public spaces.
