Winners announced: 2020 QLD Landscape Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) has announced 17 winning projects, including three Awards of Excellence and one Regional Award, at the 2020 QLD Landscape Architecture Awards. The winning projects were selected from a total of 68 submissions across the program’s 14 categories.

AILA Queensland chapter president David Uhlmann noted the recent focus on landscape architecture as a result of COVID-19.

“With people spending more time enjoying local parks, backyards, and green spaces, landscape architecture has been brought to the forefront … the [pandemic] situation [is highlighting the discipline’s] importance now, more than ever,” he said.

“We believe there has been a newfound realisation of the importance of green space and active travel opportunities that are complementary to essential infrastructure, not only in our city centres, but also in our neighbourhoods, and surrounding our homes. These outdoor destinations are playing a huge role in social recovery as we begin to step out from the COVID-19 pandemic.”
