In Brief: Rotto trail plan wins architects’ award

A PLAN for a series of walking trails on Rottnest Island has won the state’s highest accolade for landscape architecture at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects WA awards, held last week. The project, designed by North Fremantle-based firm Ecoscape, won the state award and was one of three projects to win an award for excellence. Consisting of a masterplan for a system of walking trails on Rottnest Island, the project was recognised for its sensitivity to cultural issues and high level of planning. As part of the process, a crosscultural design team was formed, which included the indigenous elder for Rottnest Island and an indigenous heritage consultant. The Walpole-based Swarbrick Wilderness art project, undertaken by the Department for Environment and Conservation, also received excellence and special citation awards for public art.
