Winners revealed: 2019 SA Landscape Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects has announced the winners of the 2019 SA Landscape Architecture Awards, which celebrate the best landscape architecture projects in the state. Five projects received Awards of Excellence from the twenty-nine projects entered in this year’s program.

Jury chair Grace Lin said the 2019 entries highlighted the role of a genuine and inclusive engagement process in the production of meaningful outcomes.

“At the core of what we do is a healthy measure of optimism, the conviction that we are contributing to such things as quality of life, rich human experiences, building capacity, well-being and resilience, to outcomes that largely stretch far beyond the present, and thinking that reaches further than the confines of any site.

From thoughtful small-scale innovations and delightful garden sanctuaries, verdant and vibrant places, engaging inclusive play spaces and activated open spaces, to integrated landscape and building settings. From places that celebrate cultural diversity and heritage significance, to major infrastructure projects and urban design frameworks, and all that fits between. Through these entries, the ability of the landscape architecture profession to lead and influence greater benefits for our communities, environment and economy is unquestionable.”

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.
