AILA National Landscape Architecture Awards
National Landscape Architecture Awards 
Winners announced on 13 October - Watch Digital Announcement | View National Winners Gallery 

The AILA Landscape Architecture Awards program provides a key vehicle for the promotion of the achievements and work of landscape architects in Australia. The Awards process is an opportunity for public and peer recognition of landscape architect’s work, and demonstrates to industry, business, government and the wider community the positive impact the profession has on Australian lives through the planning and design of the built and natural environments.

The AILA Landscape Architecture Awards program has two stages: the first is a Chapter program and the second is the National program. In 2020. QLD, WA, SA, NSW, VIC & ACT will be presenting an Awards program, with the winners at Chapter level proceeding to the National Awards.

2021 Festival of Landscape Architecture: Spectacle and Collapse
**PERTH CONFERENCE POSTPONED UNTIL 2021 - DATE TO BE CONFIRMED**
2021 | Perth

More and more of our society is drawn to experience and understand the world around us as spectacle – consumable and pleasurable, dramatic and superficial, speculative and temporary; image obsessed. At the same time, we are threatened with the collapse of ecosystems, critical to the survival and vitality of communities and cultures. Yet acting on this threat requires depth of systems thinking and practice and an appreciation of prolonged time, large scales and broad context.  Landscape architects are skilled in these modes of thought and practice – how can we better move between image making and contextual reality?  Is our focus on spectacle obscuring our vision and reducing our capacity to act in response to collapse?

As landscape architects, can we position ourselves to negotiate with and re-imagine a world at risk of collapse, to see through the spectacle and work beyond its limits?

  • Exploring Landscapes of Spectacle - Under the influence of globalisation, digitalisation, increasing mobility and social expectations, people are drawn to a perpetual search for new experiences: Instagram Landscapes; Wild Landscapes; and Future Landscapes.
  • Exploring Landscapes of Collapse - To understand, relinquish, restore, and reinvent are paramount to Landscape Architectural research and design process in order to explore new social, economic, cultural and ecological frameworks; Landscapes are regenerated to suit local demand, abandoned landscapes are reclaimed and connections to local systems are reinvented. 

Lock in your annual leave for a trip to Perth for a full program including industry tours, National Landscape Architecture Awards, a two days of conferencing featuring renowned international and Australian landscape architects and some great networking opportunities. 

More details to be released later in 2020.  Contact festival@aila.org.au for any questions in the meantime.
