A new public square for a town on the Sunshine Coast, a waterfront redevelopment in Rockhampton and a lakeside playspace in Centenary Lakes were among twenty-eight projects across twelve categories to receive awards at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects’ (AILA) 2018 Queensland Landscape Architecture Awards, announced Thursday 21 June in Brisbane.

Jury chair Amalie Wright said the awards showcase the far-reaching benefits of landscape architecture to all Queenslanders. “Landscape architects work with ‘life outside’. ‘Life outside’ impacts everyone, and we design places for people from all walks of life,” Amalie said. “Landscape architecture has the potential to touch every person in their day-to-day lives. The awards are a great opportunity to celebrate the very spaces people use and love, whether in their local communities or on their way to work.” 

The AILA Queensland award jury comprised Amalie Wright (jury chair) – director, Landscapology, Clay Johnsen – Brisbane City Council, Joshua Hinwood – City and Place Design lead, Jacobs, Sally Boer – director, E2Designlab, Yen Vu – senior landscape architect, Townsville City Council, and Daniel Jones (2017 Karl Langer winner) – graduate landscape architect, Brisbane City Council.

The winners of Awards of Excellence or Landscape Architecture Awards will be considered for the AILA National Landscape Architecture Awards, to be announced at the AILA International Festival of Landscape Architecture on the Gold Coast in October.
