2010 AILA National Landscape Architecture Award: Research and Communication

Landcom Street Tree Design Guidelines by JMD Design and Landcom

Jury comment

Landcom, the New South Wales state agency for new residential, commercial and industrial development, is committed to achieving industry best practice in urban design and sustainable design practice.

To meet their aim of improving in-house capacity of their development managers, a suite of documents has been prepared that address various aspects of project planning, design and development. This suite of six guideline documents comprises a declaration of Landcom’s expectations in “how we do things.”

In addition to addressing their internal audience, the guidelines are also used to facilitate discussions with councils, joint venture partners and consultants. JMD’s authorship of the Street Tree Design Guidelines starts with the premise that street trees are essential.
