The citation is as follows:
Project: Glenallen School Primary Play Space, Victoria
Landscape Architect: Jeavons Landscape Architects
The jurors were impressed at the way the landscape architects have created a highly tactile sensory environment for students with physical disability and health impairments.
The result is a wonderful outdoor learning environment that stimulates and encourages the children’s’ play and social interaction in an aesthetically pleasing and safe setting.
The clever integration of artworks and musical instruments built into the landscape provide another layer of interest and engagement for the students.
The varied material palette especially on the ground plain adds to the sensory interest and tactile values of the space.
There are lots of great projects that have won awards this year by many architect colleagues that we have worked with over the years. Congratulations to them all.
