Hosted annually by The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA), the 2018 National Landscape Architecture Awards recognised outstanding projects nation-wide across 14 categories.
The awards aimed to reflect the fundamental role that landscape architects play in advancing the health and wellbeing of our communities. AILA National Awards jury chair, Sara Kjaergaard said that the “awarded projects are sensitive, thoughtful and ambitious responses to repairing and improving our Australian landscapes. This is of critical importance at a time of increasing urbanisation and climate change”.
Designed by landscape architects RPS, Fish Lane delivers a highly curated urban experience celebrating Brisbane’s unique lifestyle as an outdoor city and aims to embrace the following four design principles:

To create desirable and inspiring subtropical spaces and places that are responsive to Brisbane’s climate
To provide a canvas for sustainable innovation and creativity
To provide a venue for local economy to thrive through distinct niche retail and commercial spaces
