Winners: ILI Landscape Awards 2015

Since its founding, the Irish Landscape Institute has been committed to raising standards of landscape design in Ireland and to pioneering new approaches to environmental planning,. The ILI Landscape Awards give recognition to exemplary landscape projects, and celebrate the contribution of landscape architects to the public good.

This year, a superb collection of projects was entered across eight categories, demonstrating the scope and skills of Irish Landscape Institute members within a range of practice sectors. Two new categories were launched this year: the ILI PEOPLE’s CHOICE Award, and the Diane Nickels Memorial Award for Hand drawing.

The winners of the ILI Landscape Awards 2015 were announced on 15th October at a reception in the Irish Architectural Archive, Merrion Square, Dublin City Centre. Thanks to all who camel along and helped us celebrate! See project  gallery and event gallery.   View the event and listen to the President’s speech here: https://vimeo.com/143351763
