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

    Celebrating the very best of the state’s open, public and green spaces, the awards recognise the leadership and accomplishments of landscape architects consistently raising the standards for urban design and development in the state.

    Of the eight projects entered, four winners were crowned across the categories of civic landscape, parks and open space, cultural heritage and urban design. The winning projects include the transformation of Collins Court in Hobart (by Playstreet), the Queens Domain Master Plan (by Inspiring Place), the Cascades Female Factory Yard (by Susan Small Landscape Architects) and a strategic framework put forward for Glenorchy CBD (by Inspiring Place).

    Sarah Bendeich, Tasmanian State President, Australian Institute of Landscape Architects believes Tasmanians ought to be proud of the winning projects and recognise the important role of planning in an expanding urban environment.

    “Tasmanians should be so proud of these projects as they exemplify innovative, well- planned, open spaces that allow for the outdoor lifestyle that we all enjoy – especially in our ever-expanding urban areas where planning has never been more vital,” she says.

    The jury also commented, suggesting that landscape architects are making significant contributions to the type of spaces Bendeich is talking about across the state.

    “Landscape architects are contributing to deliver revitalisation and enriched experiences in cities and places across Tasmania,” comments the Jury.

    “This year brought forward entries from well-established and emerging practices, signalling an exciting future for the profession in Tasmania.”

    Projects that received an Award of Excellence or a Landscape Architecture Award at the state level will advance to the national awards later this year. One project will be awarded the best landscape architecture project in Australia.
