We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognize their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. Our annual awards issue of Landscape Architecture Australia offers a moment to reflect on the opportunities and challenges that have shaped the industry in 2020. The National Landscape Architecture Awards presented in these pages encompass a peer-judged collection of projects from across Australia and celebrate the contribution of the profession, through research and practice, to progressive and enduring design in evolving contexts. This year, we also include coverage of the 2020 AILA Chapter Awards in recognition of the very valuable work undertaken at the state and territory level. Together, the awards programs provide a significant survey of exemplary projects from around the…

viewpoint: leading the profession

A message from AILA National President, Shaun Walsh. As we endure the effects of climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated decline in our health, society, economy and environment, it would be easy to cower in the corner and wish that everything would go back to the comfortable (but unsustainable) way it used to be. I can’t see that happening. Instead, I see the current series of events – the public health crisis and the increasingly apparent effects of climate change – defining the twenty-first century. As landscape architects, we have the skills to deal with the crisis we now find ourselves in and the opportunity to lead, however counterintuitive and awkward this may make us feel. I proudly chaired the 2020 National Landscape Architecture Awards and the projects awarded clearly…

2020 jury chair report

We acknowledge and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of Australia as the traditional custodians of our lands, waters and seas. We recognize their ability to care for Country and their deep spiritual connection with Country. We honour Elders past and present whose knowledge and wisdom ensure the continuation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. (Constitution of the AILA, 2020) In periods of significant societal disturbance, such as the current pandemic, the continuation of organizational rituals and traditions, like the annual AILA awards, are more important than ever, to maintain peer support through times of emotional need. The 2020 AILA State Chapter and National Landscape Architecture Award programs are a testimony to the devotion of our members to landscape architecture, and to each other in difficult times. The entire…

Award of Excellence The Garden of Cloud and Stone Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture Aboriginal Nation Eora Location Haymarket, New South Wales Client City of Sydney Jury comment The Garden of Cloud and Stone has resolved a technically complex urban site with a lyrical, poetically modern and local interpretation of Chinese Buddhist and Taoist philosophies. The jury recognize the high-level thinking and research that went into developing the design and are impressed with the collaborative approach that has resulted in a seamless space with a strong design narrative. Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture has used all the tools in the kit to unravel the parameters and needs of Sydney’s Chinatown, allowing the design solution to flow. The result is an elegant, cleverly curated place for the community to enjoy, which also boosts local businesses. Put simply, The Garden of Cloud and Stone…
