Curtin University School of Design and Built Environment awarded at 2023 AILA WA Awards

"A pivotal example of how, when done right, landscape architecture's collaborative approach to design can so eloquently weave together the cultural narratives, natural processes, and functional requirements of a site, in the creation of highly distinctive, flexible, and vibrant public spaces. The attention to detail and quality of the built outcome further demonstrates a commitment to long-term planning and site coordination as well as a rich cultural engagement process.” – Jury citation

We’re very proud to receive a Landscape Architecture Award in the Health and Education category for Curtin University’s School of Design and Built Environment at the recent 2023 AILA WA Awards.
