GroupGSA wins AILA NSW Award for Civic Landscape Architecture
Published on 18/07/2016 Group GSA
We are proud to announce that The Crescent in Parramatta Park has received an award for Civic Landscape Architecture in the 2016 AILA NSW Awards. We congratulate the Parramatta Park and Western Sydney Parklands as well as Context, ACOR, Design Landscapes and Landscape Solutions for this great outcome.
The upgrade of The Crescent has seamlessly integrated an active event space into the Parramatta Parklands. The resulting event space attracts international artists and promoters and the enlarged stage is a preferred venue for larger scale musical events, accommodating up to 18,000 people.
The project demonstrates the cumulative benefits of collaboration between multidisciplinary experts (historians, landscape architects, arborists, archaeologists, and engineers) in the enhancement of significant cultural landscapes and natural heritage landscapes for public enjoyment.
