The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) has announced the winners of the National Landscape Architecture Awards for 2017, a celebration of the leading projects shaping green, open and public spaces across Australia.
The annual awards program acknowledges the growing impact of landscape architecture on the spaces we inhabit, and recognises projects that stand out for their innovative approaches, that push the boundaries, or are considered to be of national significance.
This year the jury reviewed 81 projects that had progressed through from the state awards programs. With 14 categories ranging from Civic Landscapes to Play Spaces, Infrastructure to Land Management, Urban Design to Cultural Heritage and more, 28 projects were selected for national recognition. Nine of those received the highest accolade, a National Award of Excellence.
