Jury Comment

This project presents an exemplary consultation process with the local Aboriginal community and in particular with the Brodie family, who are specifically connected to this site. This underpins the creation of a culturally meaningful design, in the largest public open space within a new urban residential development in Ethelton, South Australia.

The jury sincerely compliments all involved – the landscape architects, local councils and developers – for their commitment to this dimension of the project. Interpretation of the site’s heritage and local significance, selection of endemic plantings, design and crafting of specific site elements, and the skilful sculpting of landform, planting masses and circulation have generated a space of noteworthy sensitivity and gentleness. It sits in welcome contrast to the more contemporary, urban qualities of the built form. The inclusion of a green industry training scheme in this initiative delivers significant social benefits that complement the attention to sustainable design and construction practices.
