Surabaya Urban Corridor Development Program by Hansen Partnership International: Landscape Architecture Award Australian Institute of Landscape Architects

Jury comment

The Surabaya Urban Corridor Development Program provides comprehensive analysis for an urban corridor alongside a new light rail/tram route passing through the city centre. It focuses on building local capability in urban design thinking and leadership, coupled with community-led workshops and meetings with local officials and design professionals. The project was an opportunity for knowledge exchange on sustainability, densification, heritage, economic development and connectivity that helps ensure the successful development of the next stage of the project.

Communicating often complex and sophisticated ideas in a non-English speaking nation, with respect for local customs and approaches, creates an intellectual exchange worthy of recognition. In this case, Australian landscape architects demonstrated contemporary best practice approaches to integrated transport and urban design. The result was a collaborative union between the Indonesian officials and Australian and Singaporean design teams, providing an outstanding model for similar future projects.
