South Australian practitioners have demonstrated the breadth of their involvement in the thoughtful design, delivery and management of significant and richly varied spaces throughout Adelaide and the state.

Taylor Cullity Lethlean was awarded the prestigious 2015 South Australian Medal for Landscape Architecture, for a complex and unique design of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens Wetland. The project has pushed expected boundaries of physical engagement with a seasonally shifting environment, providing close contact with water, vegetation and residing creatures, along with various art and installations along accessible trails.

Another winning project from the design category was recognised for working with a little budget and lots of imagination, to deliver a South Australian community some well-deserved happiness. The sensory play space at Suneden Special School by WAX Design features unique outdoor activity rooms prompting adventure, learning and discovery. The play space was crafted to improve the body awareness, problem solving skills, cognition, creativity and learning of students with intellectual and physical disabilities.
