Winners revealed: 2019 NSW Landscape Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects has announced the winners of the 2019 NSW Landscape Architecture Awards.

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects has announced the winners of the 2019 NSW Landscape Architecture Awards, which celebrate the best landscape architecture projects in the state.

Jury chair SueAnne Ware said the awards were particularly important for a new emphasis on rewarding and insisting on acknowledgement of Indigenous relationships to landscape.

“The 2019 Awards should be remembered as significant for the landscape architecture profession. As of this year, all award entries were required to acknowledge the Aboriginal Nation relevant to the project.”

“The Jury commends AILA’s leadership group and all members for adopting this approach towards recognition of Australia’s landscapes and First People.”
