Green Infrastructure by Oxigen Landscape Architects, Urban Design

Client: Botanical Gardens of Adelaide

Jury comment

The Green Infrastructure Working Paper looks to advance the case for Green Infrastructure and its importance to the future planning and design of Adelaide as a sustainable city. It consolidates and explains further the South Australian Government’s intentions under the 30 Year Plan to improve liveability, drive sustainability and increase resilience to climate change.

The Green Infrastructure Working Paper outlines the value Green Infrastructure has to Adelaide, but also, notably, to other Australian cities and communities, reflects international best practice and sets a ‘roadmap’ for Green Infrastructure delivery that will be responsive to Australia’s varying, yet unique landscapes, climates and socio-political settings.

This document is the first in Australia to provide such a useable and flexible planning tool.
