Auckland’s dynamic dozen shortlisted for landscape awards

Twelve Auckland Council projects have been shortlisted for the 2022 New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects (NZILA) Awards.

The list of projects in the running for NZILA honours come from the Auckland Council Group – Auckland Transport, Eke Panuku, Tūpuna Maunga Authority and Auckland Council.

In one category – Civic and Urban Design – three of the shortlisted projects come from the celebrated Downtown Programme: Te Wānanga (Isthmus), Quay Street upgrade (LandLAB) and Galway Street mid-portion (Jasmax). 

Auckland Mayor, Phil Goff said it was fantastic to see so many newly completed projects shortlisted for the awards.

“The shortlisting of so many Auckland Council projects for these prestigious national awards shows the progress we are making to transform our public spaces into beautiful, vibrant and people-friendly places for Aucklanders and visitors to enjoy,” he said.

“Congratulations to everyone involved in delivering these projects, and thank you in particular to our mana whenua partners who continue to help us ensure that te ao Māori narratives, telling the story of Tāmaki Makaurau, are woven into the landscape of our city.”

Included in the shortlisted entries are the Westhaven Promenade – Stage 2 (pictured, below), a two-kilometre ‘shared use’ promenade on the water’s edge that unlocks public access to the marine waterfront, providing a walkway and recreational cycleway from Daldy Street in the Wynyard Quarter to the Harbour Bridge.
