Winners announced: 2018 NSW Landscape Architecture Awards

A public park that celebrates an existing grassland, an accessible green roof on a former industrial site and an imaginative garden for wild play were among fifteen projects across twelve categories to receive awards at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects’ (AILA) 2018 NSW Landscape Architecture Awards, announced Thursday 5 July in Sydney.

“NSW continues to be a centre for activity for landscape architects. The diversity of the different work in the state is captured in the entries. There is some world class work emerging now, as landscape architects respond to the growth in major regional centres, Western Sydney development and the renewal work in Sydney,” said AILA NSW President Mark Tyrrell.

“Landscape architects represent a profession increasingly dominating policy debate. Landscape architects are beginning to lead policy making to deliver exemplary outcomes for our cities, towns, regions and their inhabitants.”

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.
