The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects has announced the winners of the 2019 National Landscape Architecture Awards.
AILA has recognised 32 winners across 14 categories, including 13 Awards of Excellence, highlighting projects that went “above and beyond”.
The jury, led by AILA chief executive Tim Arnold, was impressed with the entrants’ commitment to delivering projects that promote sustainability through green infrastructure, as well as the focus on traditional owners being central to the design ethos of many projects.
Winning entrants shared a common civic philosophy helping to address and improve the future quality of our streets and public squares, gardens and wetlands, parks and play spaces, rivers and creeks that surround us.
Four projects were awarded under the Civic Landscape category, representing the most awards presented under a single category.
“The future design and management of Civic Space is a very high priority for AILA and will be the focal point of this year’s International Landscape Architecture Festival, The Square and The Park,” AILA chief executive Tim Arnold said.
