The landscape design of Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park has been announced as the winner of the National Award for Excellence by the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects.
Plan E landscape architects developed the design and are the recipients of this prestigious award.
The innovative landscape design evolved from a challenging brief to create a ‘natural’ space to reconnect children with nature.
It includes a running creek, wetlands, rocks, timber and other elements to engage and inspire children in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park. Winding paths, boardwalks and bridges create a sense of immersion in the bush.
According to the AILA judges, the thoughtful, contemporary design is respectful and sensitive to the existing environmental conditions:
Congratulations to Plan E, the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority and all the partners in the project on this well-deserved national recognition.
