Aiming to create continuous awareness and recognition of landscape architecture as one of the key professions, the awards will honour and recognise the list of professional winners who have played a key role in shaping the environment towards a better future.
A total of 104 project entries from 50 landscape architecture firms from Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand was received. The Federation will recognise winners, selected by a two-stage judging process, in nine categories, namely Analysis & Master Planning, Communities, Cultural and Urban Landscape, Infrastructure, Lighting and Night Experience, Nature Conservation, Parks and Open Space, Residential and Skyrise Greenery. A total of 84 awards will be given out.
The inaugural LA Luminary Awards is IFLA Asia-Pacific's highest honour accorded to its regional luminaries who have contributed to protecting, advocating, enhancing and sustaining the living environment and communities in their profession and regions, as previously announced at the 2017 IFLA Asia Pacific Congress.
