Winners announced: 2019 VIC Landscape Architecture Awards

The grounds for a regional hospital, the rooftop gardens of a Parliament building and a linear park beneath an elevated rail line were among the winners at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects’ (AILA) 2019 VIC Landscape Architecture Awards, announced Friday 14 June in Melbourne.

“The jury was pleased by the number and quality of award entries this year,” said jury chair, Mary Papaioannou.

“We saw the contribution projects make through delivering public realm that encourages recovery and rehabilitation, inclusivity and engagement. We saw projects located in tertiary education settings that place student life at the heart of the campus experience, and many projects embracing the principles of biophilic design that celebrate the role plants play in the enrichment of human life. There was a strong geographic representation of projects demonstrating that landscape architects’ impact reaches far beyond urban environments.”

AILA Victorian Chapter president Adrian Gray: “Landscape architects ensure the complex relationship between people and nature is embedded through the many places that shape the way we live on this planet. These awards recognise that great design supports human well-being in our political, academic, health, urban and rural environments. Landscape architects create quality places where people and nature coexist.”

The 2019 AILA QLD awards jury comprised Mary Papaioannou – consultant and registered landscape architect, (jury chair); Ben Kronenberg – senior landscape architect at Openwork; Dan Nunan – registered landscape architect at Circle Plan; Elliet Spring – associate director at MGS Architects; Tanja Beer – academic fellow in Performance Design and Sustainability (Ecoscenography) at Melbourne University; and Bronwen Hamilton – Office of Victorian Government Architect (for Urban Design category only).

Projects receiving Awards of Excellence and Landscape Architecture Awards will proceed to the National Awards with winners announced at the 2019 International Festival of Landscape Architecture to be held in Melbourne in October.
