2019 National Landscape Architecture Awards: Landscape Architecture Award for Civic Landscape

Yagan Square by Aspect Studios, Lyons Architecture and Iredale Pedersen Hook

Jury citation:

Yagan Square is a project of local and state significance that encapsulates the idea of convergence. Design elements repair and amplify physical connections to adjacent areas, enabling the project to pose as Perth’s new epicentre. Emblematic Western Australian water geometry, stone and plants feature alongside stories of the Whadjuk Noongar people to create a stimulating and transcending landscape. Yagan Square weaves together an entrancing story of Western Australia’s history and respectfully considers the traditional owners of the land while providing civic purpose.

Location: Perth (WA)

Aboriginal Nation: Whadjuk
