    The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) has announced the winners of the 2016 South Australian Landscape Architecture Awards, celebrating the very best of South Australia’s green, open and public spaces.

    The annual awards recognise the contribution of landscape architecture projects to enhancing South Australia’s liveability, economic development and global profile. 

    This year 16 awards were presented across seven categories – civic landscape, parks and open space, infrastructure, tourism, urban design, research, policy and communications, and communities. Some of the key winning projects included Flinders University Hub & Hub Plaza, Henley Square and the Preschool Outdoor Learning Areas. 

    “A key aspect in the success of the awarded projects is the facilitation of engagement, with community taking an active role in the shaping of public spaces; dialogue with local communities to produce equitable outcomes with meaning and relevance for those communities,” the 2016 jury comments.

    “Increasingly our complex interactions with the natural environment in a built world, requires a sensitive and informed response. The necessity and relevance of the profession in highlighting these challenges and leading with considered and nuanced design is an imperative for the sustainability of our cities.” 

    “South Australian’s should be so proud of these projects that exemplify the importance of innovative, well planned spaces that allows for the outdoor lifestyle we all enjoy,” says Ben Willsmore, AILA SA President.

    “With over 60 per cent of Australia’s population now living in the major capitals, quality designed outcomes [have] never been more vital.”  

    The South Australian State Landscape Architect Awards 2016 took place at a cocktail event on Friday 29 July at the Office for Design and Architecture (ODASA).

    The projects awarded an Award of Excellence and a Landscape Architecture Award will proceed through to the national awards, to take place in the second half of the year, where one project will be awarded the best landscape architect project in the country.
