The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) has announced the winners of the 2018 VIC Landscape Architecture Awards.

A cycling trail that responds thoughtfully to its context, a masterplan for one of Victoria’s most unique national parks, and a design for the open space of an alpine town were among the winners at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects’ (AILA) 2018 VIC Landscape Architecture Awards, announced Friday 10 August in Melbourne.

“This year the entries demonstrated not only the maturity of the profession but also investment in high-quality strategic and landscape design-led projects. We are fortunate to recognise an array of projects that enhance public spaces, engage with the community and exemplify enduring design,” said the awards jury chair Bronwen Hamilton.

AILA Victorian Chapter president Adrian Gray: “The rejuvenation of public and private spaces and a move towards integrated green infrastructure demonstrates the role that landscape architecture has in sustaining human health and well-being and the liveability of Melbourne. The awards are a great way to recognise the outstanding projects in our state and their contribution to the public and respective communities.”

The 2018 AILA VIC awards jury comprised Bronwen Hamilton – manager Victorian Design Review Panel at the Office of the Victorian Government Architect (jury chair); Mary Papaioannou, immediate past AILA Victoria vice-president and consultant landscape architect; Morag Ritchie – landscape architect in Campus Planning and Design at the University of Melbourne; Holly Hein – landscape architect at Playce and lecturer at RMIT University; Ben Kronenberg – senior landscape architect at Openwork; and Jocelyn Chiew – registered architect, landscape architect and urban designer at Monash University.

An exhibition of the award-winning projects in the Victorian state awards will be on display at RMIT Design Hub from 20 August. Projects receiving Awards of Excellence and Landscape Architecture Awards will proceed to the National Awards with winners announced on Thursday 11 October as part of this year’s International Festival of Landscape Architecture.
