The International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) Asia-Pacific Region has announced the results of its inaugral IFLA Asia-Pac LA Awards.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony on 4 November 2017 at the IFLA Asia Pacific Congress 2017, to be held at Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park.

The IFLA Asia-Pac LA Awards aims to build continuous awareness and recognition of landscape architecture together with other professions that play a key role in shaping our cities and environment.

The federation received a total of 104 project entries from fifty landscape architecture firms across ten countries, namely Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. The entries were submitted into nine categories: Analysis and Master Planning; Communities; Cultural and Urban Landscape; Infrastructure; Lighting and Night Experience; Nature Conservation; Parks and Open Space; Residential; and Skyrise Greenery.

Entries were put through a rigorous two-stage judging process, beginning with the online juror stage, involving eleven presidents from respective Asia Pacific national associations, followed by the final juror stage, which consisted of five regional IFLA presidents as well as two special guest jury members. No representative of Australia’s association, the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, joined the jury.

A total of 84 awards will be given out, including:

  • Outstanding Award: 20 Winners
  • Award of Excellence: 28 Winners
  • Honourable Mention: 36 Winners
