Three projects – the Constitution Avenue Transformation by Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture, National Capital Authority, Hill Thalis, SMEC and AECOM; contour 556 by Harris Hobbs; and the Craft Your Park community consultation process by Spacelab all received Awards of Excellence at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects’ (AILA) 2018 ACT Landscape Architecture Awards announced on Thursday 7 June.

Ten other projects received Landscape Architecture Awards for work that contributed to the advancement of landscape architecture. 

“There are a number of projects from this year’s Awards program that demonstrate the community and environmental benefits that come from proper community engagement and consultation, planning for green infrastructure and involve landscape architects leading quality design projects at the early stages,” AILA ACT Chapter President Gay Williamson said.

“We congratulate all of the Landscape Architecture Award winners and thank all of the entries in this year’s program – it truly is a magnificent showcase of high quality landscape architecture.”

The AILA ACT award jury comprised Oi Choong FAILA – AILA fellow landscape architect; Lyndon Anderson – dean of the Faculty of Arts and Design at the University of Canberra; Stephen Kirsu – registered landscape architect; Malcolm Snow – CEO City Renewal Authority; Barbara Schaffer – government architect NSW, and Nino Ballantonio – architect (director, Ail Studio).

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.
