2018 National Landscape Architecture Awards: Landscape Architecture Award for Landscape Planning

Southern Parklands Vision 2036 by Turf Design Studio and Environmental Partnership Collaboration (TDEP)

Jury citation:

This project demonstrates excellent leadership and sustainable outcomes for “Sydney’s Biggest Backyard,” consisting of some 1,500 hectares. The landscape architect led all aspects of the project and, with stakeholder consultation, developed a founding set of solid principles to inform and guide future planning and decision-making for the enhancement of the parkland corridor and adjacent interconnected areas. This project has been used to inform parliamentary decision-making with the realignment of the M12 Motorway link. It has the capacity to positively address the growing community and its future interactions with the parklands as well as provide a strong landscape framework for future implementation planning opportunities.

Location: Western Sydney Parklands (NSW)
