    Canberra Medallion

    We are delighted to announce that Constitution Avenue has been awarded the John Overall Prize for Urban Design and the Canberra Medallion at the recent ACT Institute of Architects Awards. The project was a collaboration involving the National Capital Authority, Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture, Hill Thalis, SMEC and AECOM. The jury citation notes that, ‘ the character of the avenue is responsive to its location and varies in scale from civic to boulevard, bushland to ceremonial effortlessly.’ It describes the project an exemplar of how to plan, design and deliver public domain works.
