2019 National Landscape Architecture Awards: Landscape Architecture Award for Research, Policy and Communications

Collaboration Towards Cities That Thrive: Communicating The Role of Healing Gardens by Conrad Gargett

Jury citation:

Although the benefits of contact with nature for mental and physical wellbeing are well-known, landscapes are still not sufficiently incorporated into many projects. For this reason the jury recognized the need for specific research that assists project teams in advocating for the inclusion of landscape.

The commitment of academics, researchers and designers in a wideranging collaboration over a number of years has resulted in publications and practical case studies that highlight the role of healing gardens in positively influencing broader health and wellbeing.
