A further three projects received Landscape Architecture Awards: Cultivated by Fire in International Projects; Monash University Campus Park in Parks and Open Space; and Twig House in Gardens.

“This exhibition … celebrates the Australian landscape as one that has always been shaped by cultural processes.. The project is a leading demonstration of the capacity of landscape to reflect culture, temporalities and intertwined relationships.”
-Jury Citation, 2019 National AILA Awards : Cultivated by Fire

“The public realm is the binding element of Monash University’s campus….The project provides huge benefit as a liveable green space for a dense population of users and its design exemplifies successful navigation of the spatial experience beyond the visual finish.”

“Twig House demonstrates a unique outcome achieved by a strong alignment between client, architect and landscape architect. Striking architectural forms frame views that are enlivened by the deliberate positioning of a restrained plant palette. Contrasting plant forms and colours respond to the architecture, creating a series of memorable compositions across the garden. The strength of these settings is underpinned by the sophistication of plants selected to suit the varied microclimates created by the sculptural house.”
– Jury Citation, 2019 National AILA Awards : Twig House

“Collectively, we believe the standard of awarded works this year sets an exciting precedent for built outcomes now and into the future. Demonstrating leadership and advocacy for approaches outside of the norm, the award recipients have succeeded in enhancing local landscapes so that they are an impetus for greater wellbeing and shared understanding within
the community”
