2013 AAA Awards announced

Canberra’s stunning new National Arboretum was the venue for the announcement of the 2013 Australian Achievement in Architecture Awards.

Under the glass roof of the new National Arboretum Canberra, the Australian institute of Architects announced its 2013 Australian Achievement in Architecture Awards on March 20.

The National Arboretum, by architects Tonkin Zulaikha Greer in association with landscape architects Taylor Cullity Lethlean, is a grand dream realized: Walter Burley Griffin’s vision for a place where trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants are cultivated for the purpose of conservation, preservation, research, education and display. Many years in the making, the National Arboretum is reviewed by Philip Thalis in the May 2013 issue of Landscape Architecture Australia.
