2016 Queensland Landscape Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects has announced the winners of the 2016 Queensland Landscape Architecture Awards.

AILA granted 14 awards across 11 categories including civic landscape, parks and open space, infrastructure, conservation, tourism, urban design, communities and gardens, recognizing the best projects in design, planning and delivery of parks and green and urban spaces across the state.

The increasing challenge of climate change was evident in this year’s winning projects, which exhibited a shift towards climate-conscious design as a core value necessity. “The result of a dynamic engagement and collaboration with clients, communities and cultures, and between the public and private sectors, this year’s submissions illustrate the critical role of landscape planning an design as catalysts for expressing community identity, sense of place, and for energizing local economies,” the jury said.

Projects which received an Award of Excellence and a Landscape Architecture Award at state level will proceed to the national awards, which will take place in the second half of the year where one project will be awarded the best landscape architect project in the country.
