    AILA Awards showcase NSW’s best landscape projects; Taronga Zoo project wins people’s choice award

    Nathan Johnson

    A zoo exhibit that encourages visitors to mimic the play of the animals on display has been named NSW’s most popular new public space by taking the People’s Choice Award at the 2014 Australian Institute of Landscape Architects NSW Awards.

    Taronga Zoo’s Lemur Forest Adventure by Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture (JILA) and Hill Thalis Architecture & Urban Projects brings together play, education, interpretation and animal care by encouraging visitors to interact with animals in an immersed manner.

    The project received 51 per cent of the 17, 533 total votes that were polled by the Sydney Morning Herald, narrowly edging out the Inner West Light Rail Link which received 45 per cent of the votes.

    Also announced on the night was the coveted Medal for Landscape Architecture which was awarded to renowned landscape architect Sue Barnsley for her Jubilee Playground upgrade in Sydney’s Bayside town of Glebe.

    Barnsley continues her massively successful year at the realms of her firm which also received the Landscape Design prize at the 2014 Sustainability Awards,  as well as the Urban Design Award at the 2014 Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) National Architecture Awards—both for her hand in the Prince Alfred Park + Pool Upgrade in Sydney.

    It was also a great year for OCULUS who received a total of six prizes including all three of the Awards For Design In Landscape Architecture.
