Through a series of purposeful interventions, Fish Lane has transformed a previously neglected backstreet into a vibrant urban experience celebrating Brisbane’s outdoor lifestyle. The laneway is now a safe and legible pedestrian space, showcasing local artists and linking the cultural hub of South Bank to the densifying suburb of West End. The grungy, urban character of this part of town has been retained, underlined by new retail and dining interventions and new seating, lighting and wayfinding. The jury commended the role of the landscape architects as urban advocates in the delivery of an outstanding piece of public infrastructure.
