Awards

Each project is special. Through knowledge, creativity and understanding we strive to create innovative natural spaces. GLAS has been the recipient of a number of awards across a variety of categories including:
2020 AILA Victoria Award, Parks and Open Space. Valley Creek for Monash University.

Jury citation: “The re-surfacing of Valley Creek exemplifies how urban drains can be converted into engaging and attractive waterways. Underpinned by clear environmental drivers and robust engineering this deceptively simple outcome is polished and finely executed. It delivers wide-ranging ecological benefits and creates an appealing open space for students and residents.”

2020 AILA Victoria Award, Community Contribution. Tiny Wetland.

Jury citation: “Tiny Wetland is a micro-scaled exploratory project that ingeniously extends the creative practice of its associated landscape architects’ office into the public realm. The conversations sparked by this intervention contribute to increased awareness of ecological diversity. This tiny landscape, demonstrates how micro interventions can cumulatively add to the broader discourse on sustainability.”

2020 PIA Victoria Award, Best Planning Ideas – Small Project. Mount Street Areas Masterplan.

Jury Citation “A clever response to the pressure urban renewal places on the available open space.” “It is a great example of a small project that will have a huge impact for existing and future residents. A project that can easily be applied to other similar situations”
