Winners revealed: 2019 Tasmania Landscape Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) has announced the winners of the 2019 Tasmania Landscape Architecture Awards, a biennial awards program that honours outstanding landscape architecture projects.

In a strong showing, all four Awards of Excellence – the program’s top honour in each category – went to Inspiring Place for four different projects.

Mary Papaioannou, jury chair, said, “It is clear that the Tasmanian landscape architects are questioning the status quo.”

“The jury was impressed by the sophistication of successful projects – from the broad scale and strategic thinking behind them, to well-documented processes and skilful, often beautiful project resolution.”

AILA Tasmania president Miriam Shevland said, “Tasmania continues to be a centre for activity for landscape architects. The diversity of the different work in the state is captured in the entries. There is some world class work emerging now, as landscape architects respond to changes across the state.

“Landscape architects represent a profession increasingly dominating policy debate. Landscape architects are beginning to lead policy making to deliver exemplary outcomes for our cities, towns, regions and their inhabitants.”
