Hosted by the Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture (AILA), the AILA Landscape Architecture Awards program provides a key vehicle for the promotion of the achievements and work of landscape architects across Australia. The Awards are an opportunity for public and peer recognition of landscape architect’s work, and demonstrates to the industry, businesses, the government and the wider community the positive impact the profession has on Australian lives through the planning and design of the built and natural environments.
Due to COVID-19, AILA tried something new this year and delivered the NSW, ACT, VIC and QLD Chapter Awards digitally! This format allows anyone from around the world to watch the online presentations anytime and the best part is that it gives winners and entrants the profiling they all deserve.
This year, the NSW Landscape Architecture Awards Program received a record 63 entries.
The NSW jury was delighted with the breadth and quality of submissions, identifying 20 Landscape Architecture Awards and 13 Awards of Excellence.
In recognising the regional scale of many of the NSW projects, the jury also awarded four inaugural Regional Achievement in Landscape Architecture Awards in NSW in recognition of the Illawarra, the Hunter, Western NSW and Northern NSW.
