Jury comment

Using one of Perth’s inner-city suburbs as its testing ground, this design-based research project explores the leadership that landscape architects can bring to medium-density infill projects. While the landscape scope of infill projects is typically minimal and understood on a site-by-site basis, this project brings landscape to the fore, exploring the site-, precinctan­d suburb-scale opportunit­ies introduced by this shift. The project demonstrat­es leadership in all aspects: through the landscape-led design outcomes developed; through the landscape architect-led collaborat­ion and coordinati­on approaches across its multidisci­plinary team; and through the research and advocacy material the project has generated. Overall, Place Value Ashfield responds to the gap it identifies with creativity and rigour, providing useful knowledge, tools and precedent to the profession.
