Record entries for NZ Landscape Architects Awards

Record entries for NZ Landscape Architects Awards

Famous New Zealand landmarks will be included among some of the entries in the New Zealand landscape architects awards to be announced in April next year.

The 2004 Pride of Place Landscape Awards will be a highlight of the national conference to be held in Christchurch from April 4 to 6. Fifty landscape architects have entered the awards run by the New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects.

``This year’s awards programme aims to capture the increasingly diverse nature of landscape architecture,’’ awards convenor Renee Lambert said today.

In 2002, whilst two gold awards presented, no premiere awards were won by anyone. The number of awards changes each year.

The Landscape Planning gold award two years ago went to Christine Hermaia of the Christchurch City Council for the city’s waterways and wetlands education strategy. The Landscape Design gold award went to the Isthmus Group Ltd for the New Plymouth foreshore development in Taranaki.

The New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects have presented awards for landscape architecture for the last 15 years. This year the award categories challenge landscape architects to profile recent work that in its diversity represents the extent to which this profession has expanded its boundaries in the last decade.

The New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects, which has over 400 members, celebrated its 30th birthday last year.

Big issues at the annual conference revolve around urban sustainability - which links with the new award of excellence category of sustainability in the awards this year.

The panels of judges for the awards are: Landscape Planning: Professor Simon Swaffield (Lincoln University), Helen Preston Jones (landscape architect with Opus Consultants), and Raewyn Peart (environmental law researcher and director, Firm Ground Ltd). Landscape Design: Jan Woodhouse (landscape architect, Woodhouse & Associates), Jeremy Head (landscape architect, Earthwork), and John McKay (architect and urban designer, Waitakere City Council).
