The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) has announced the launch of the inaugural WE-EF LIGHTING Landscape Architecture After Dark national competition.
The competition is designed to recognise and celebrate the very best of Australian landscape lighting and calls for entries from AILA registered landscape architects, applicants and graduates. Finalists will be selected by a People’s Choice voting system, followed by an official regional and national winner selection by expert jury.
Jury members will include Linda Corkery FAILA and AILA National President; Nathalie Ward FAILA and Director Lat27; Daniel Firns AILA and Design Director, UDLA; and Peter McLean, Senior Lighting Designer and Founder of Lighting, Art + Science.
All regional winners (regions are NSW/ACT, QLD, VIC/TAS, and SA/WA/NT) will receive a full Festival pass to the 2019 International Festival of Landscape Architecture, including travel and accommodation, and the overall national winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to WE- EF LIGHTING Design and Manufacturing Centre (Bangkok, Thailand) in February 2019.
WE-EF Marketing Manager Alena Leonardi said, “We believe that lighting is a powerful architectural resource. To showcase the dramatic impact quality lighting can have on the spaces we live in – revealing, enhancing and transforming – and complementing the design of these spaces by day we are delighted to launch this unique initiative”.
