Canberra’s Bowen Place Crossing, on Lake Burley Griffin, has been announced as the winner of the International Federation of Landscape Architect’s Excellence for Infrastructure Award.
Acting Chief Executive for the National Capital Authority (NCA), Andrew Smith, said that the $10 million project managed by the NCA was initiated to enhance public safety and with the right team it was transformed to a place making opportunity.
