The Sydney’s highly anticipated Barangaroo project and a plan for Parramatta City River, were two of 20 landscape architecture projects that secured Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture NSW Awards.
October 21st, 2015
In September, the awards night celebrated the best in landscape architecture across New South Wales. “We were struck by how transformational and challenging the entries were!” said Chair of the Awards Jury, Julie Marler. “NSW is being championed by beautiful landscapes that enhance living and working environments, contribute to the social energy of the city and communicate our cultural heritage”.
McGregor Coxall, in partnership with Parramatta City Council, was awarded the prestigious New South Wales 2015 Medal for Landscape Architecture, for the bold vision to revitalise Parramatta into a vibrant public space. The compelling and innovative strategy reactivates the river corridor, and connects it to the city through open spaces, access ways and structured quarters.
Barangaroo also accepts its first official accolade, with Peter Walker and Partners, Johnson Pilton Walker, Stuart Pittendrigh, Ron Powell and Tract Consultants receiving the NSW President’s Choice Award for their collaborative and sustainable approach to the new project.
The world-class Wylde Mountain Bike Trail – a collaborative project between GroupGSA and Western Sydney Parklands Trust – was voted as the best addition to the state’s landscape in the Premier’s People’s Choice Award in Landscape Architecture.
The full list of recipients can be seen on the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects website.
