New Quay Central Park, ASPECT Studios with SAALA, Dianna Snape
In Victoria, a total of 60 projects were entered, with 34 awards allocated in areas that successfully demonstrate the positive impact that well designed outdoor spaces have on public life, such as health and education, playspaces and gardens.
An innovative space for the creative community, a four-decade long volunteering effort, a healing garden at the Heide Museum, and a new green open space in Melbourne’s CBD are just some of the entries that have been recognised as part of this year’s AILA Victoria Landscape Architecture Awards.
The Victorian Chapter is delighted to announce the official project winners of each category and the Future Leaders in their state.
