The AILA WA Commendation Award for Design in Landscape Architecture
Tract (WA) Pty Ltd
Coal Dam Park, Midland Redevelopment
Client: Midland Development Authority
Citation: The successful design of this park revolves around the sensitive retention of the historically significant coal dam and the industrial elements that have also survived.
The jury was impressed with how these elements were integrated into a new design for a park that will essentially service a new residential community. The use of the former railway bridge to incorporate aeration is a particularly innovative aspect of this project.
