Maribyrnong project receives Landscape Architecture Award for Landscape Planning
The Maribyrnong Integrated Water Management Strategy won its second award this year, this time at the 2020 National Landscape Architecture Awards in the Landscape Planning Category. We are delighted to have this project acknowledged in this way, cited as a rigorous and clear strategic speculation that offers strategies for renewal along urban waterways. The aspirational vision for flood-prone areas catalyses behavioural and attitudinal change toward oft-forgotten public infrastructure, whilst harnessing social and ecological opportunities.
The jury noted the strong and accessible graphic representation and commended the document as an evocative blue-green ‘next step’. Thank you to our collaborators Alluvium Consulting and Venant Solutions, and to our client City of Melbourne.
