Exciting accolade for RHIP

RHIP’s pioneering Living Infrastructure Strategy has claimed a 2023 NSW Landscape Architecture Award for Research, Policy and Communications at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects’ (AILA) NSW Landscape Architecture Awards ceremony.

‘Living infrastructure’ refers to natural elements and features incorporated in human-built environments or to interconnected ecosystems found in urban areas.

Naturally occurring elements such as trees, shrubs, flowers, water, timber, and stone are considered valuable assets for creating restorative settings that can improve human health and well-being due to their environmental and health benefits, as well as human desire for nature experiences (biophilia).

The RHIP Living Infrastructure Strategy provides an innovative approach to addressing health challenges and establishing the Precinct as a model of best practice in sustainability and innovation.

By exploring ways that these living assets can be incorporated into designed spaces and features, this strategy aims to enhance the experience of daily life across the Precinct.
