Monash Living Lab makes a remarkable contribution to sustainable, relational and productive design, with great benefits for practitioners and industry. Using green wall infrastructure to promote and showcase research into planting, biofiltration and water quality improvements, the design is thoughtful and encourages participation with systems that are often hidden. The jury commends Aspect Studios’ contribution to the Living Lab. Its activation of the demonstrative qualities of sustainable design will lead to further public investigation into this innovative and necessary landscape type for built environments within Australia.
