Congratulations to all collaborators on the Yagan Square project on being awarded the 2019 National Landscape Architecture Award in the Civic Landscape category.
Yagan Square is a project of local and state significance that encapsulates the idea of convergence. Design elements repair and amplify physical connections to adjacent areas, enabling the project to pose as Perth’s new epicentre.
Emblematic Western Australian water geometry, stone and plants feature alongside stories of the Whadjuk Noongar people to create a stimulating and enticing landscape. Yagan Square weaves together an entrancing tale of Western Australia’s history and respectfully considers the traditional owners of the land, while providing common purpose.
Collaborators on the Yagan Square project include Lyons Architects, IPH architects and ASPECT Studios, working with the MRA and Whadjuk Working Group.
