A significant endeavour: Landscape architecture in Australia’s capital
A recent article in Foreground highlights the connection between Constitution Avenue, Campbell Section 5 and City to the Lake projects in reshaping a significant part of Canberra’s urban centre.
The newly opened park at Campbell Section 5 has recently been recognised in several design awards including:
AILA (ACT) Award for Excellence – Parks and Open Space 2016 – Winner
Stormwater (NSW) Award for Excellence in Integrated Stormwater Design 2016 – Highly Commended
Heavy rains in Canberra over a number of days have tested the new creek with all systems working to perfection.
A new piece of Campbell emerges as the park takes shape.
The new park at Campbell Section 5 provides a continuous park frontage to the suburb and knits the new street network into the existing.
With the streets open to the public excitement is now building for access to this new local recreation space.
JILA has been busy on site with the final stage of works on the new urban park at Campbell Section 5. The recently completed new street network, urban plaza and upgrade of Constitution Avenue frontage has set the standard for a high quality urban precinct in the heart of Canberra.
Work on site is just about to get underway on Campbel Section 5. JILA have been working hard for the past couple of years envisaging and designing the transformation of a vacant block in central Canberra into a new high quality urban precinct.
With a Constitution Avenue address, a new 3.4Ha of public domain, and a new local street network, we cant wait to get our hands dirty on site.
