Landscape Planning Award of Excellence: Vibrant Towns of the Scenic Rim
Recipient: John Mongard Landscape Architects
Vibrant Towns of the Scenic Rim is a landmark project to create an integrated region of outstanding destinations focused on local culture and community life. At the core of the project is extensive community involvement, creating a process of one to one participatory design over a year long collaboration. Vibrant Towns is outstanding in its approach; it overlays community participation with a rigorous exploration of the physical, economic and social structures of each town; and proposes achievable projects to generate change.
