2019 National Landscape Architecture Awards announced

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) has announced the winners of the 2019 National Landscape Architecture Awards.

This year’s program recognized 32 winners over 14 categories, with 13 projects receiving Awards of Excellence, and two individuals receiving President’s Awards for their personal contributions.

Tim Arnold, AILA chief executive officer, said the jury was impressed with both the entrants’ commitment to sustainable outcomes through green infrastructure and the focus on Traditional Owners as central to design development and outcomes.

“The modern world presents numerous challenges for landscape architects of today, but we are consistently seeing projects respond to common issues to create valuable contributions to our regions and cities.”

Bendigo Hospital Project, Southern Parklands Framework and City Bikeways: North–South Bikeway were among the big winners on the night, all receiving Awards of Excellence in their respective categories.

The greatest number of awards was in the Civic Landscape category – with four awards given out in total.

“The future design and management of civic space is a very high priority for AILA and is the focal point of this year’s International Landscape Architecture Festival,” said Arnold.

The 2019 National Landscape Architecture Awards jury comprised Peta-Maree Ashford (jury chair), Ben Willsmore, Candy Rosmarin, Bridget Keane, Ezra Jacobs-Smith and Roderick Simpson.
