2019 National Landscape Architecture Awards: Award of Excellence for Landscape Planning

Moonee Ponds Creek Strategic Opportunities Plan by McGregor Coxall

Jury citation:

The Moonee Ponds Creek Strategic Opportunities Plan was recognized for its potential as a catalyst for long-term change. By foregrounding the agency of design, McGregor Coxall, Wave Consulting and the City of Melbourne have not only offered ambitious strategies for the future of the creek but also developed a model for advocacy that emphasizes the ability of landscape architecture to draw attention to, research, reconsider and speculate about the future of our waterways and cities.

The plan offers a compelling vision for this combined waterway and freeway system in Melbourne’s north. The evocative imagery used throughout helps to embody the vision for a reinvigorated waterway once again teeming with life.

Location: Melbourne (Vic)

Aboriginal Nations: Kulin
