National Award Citation 

This project is recognised for its ambitious vision and industry leadership, advocating for the re-imagining of redundant grey infrastructure as a vibrant civic gem within a densely populated part of the city. The innovative approach to combining art and play into an exciting adventure space presents a thoughtful proposition of the role of play in human development and cultural expression, while creating an identifiable landmark within the new open space. With a meticulous selection of plants, the design admirably showcases local native ecologies, contributing to climate resilience and urban heat mitigation through the planting of 400 trees. The project's approach to furnishings and materials generates a playful topography that maintains a clear narrative throughout the sequence of spaces.
