National Award Citation

This powerful installation conveys fleeting glimpses of the early industry and diverse cultural history of Broome. The translucent, sail-like sculpture is reminiscent of the clothesline that was part of a pearling camp that once existed on the site. Embracing the coastal breeze, the sculpture creates a dynamic, ever-changing frame for the panoramic ocean backdrop. Once darkness falls, vivid illustrations are projected onto the flowing fabric sails, further heightening the experience. The jury recognized the work’s process of engagement with local communities, project partners and authorities, and its efforts to minimize its impact on the land.

AILA Landscape Architecture Award.

The Landscape Architecture Awards program provides a key vehicle for the promotion of the achievements and work of landscape architects in Australia. The Awards process is an opportunity for public and peer recognition of landscape architect’s work. It demonstrates to industry, business, government and the wider community the positive impact the profession has on Australian lives through the planning and design of the built and natural environments.
