2018 National Landscape Architecture Awards: Award of Excellence for Community Contribution

Place of Healing by UDLA

Jury citation:

This project demonstrates a deep understanding of Indigenous planning, management and cultural heritage as well as intergenerational cultural healing. The site is significant. It provides a safe haven for members of the Western Australian stolen generation who were taken to live in the nearby Sister Kate’s Home, established in 1934 to house Aboriginal children removed from their families and Country across the state. The reimagined bush block builds the capacity of the Sister Kate’s Home Kids Aboriginal Corporation by providing an event space, a healing walk, an edible garden, a fauna and flora walk, vehicle access and office facilities.
