Dandenong Education Precinct | Dandenong Australia | Outlines Landscape Architecture

Dandenong Education Precinct | Dandenong Australia | Outlines Landscape Architecture

Dandenong Education Precinct is ground-breaking project which involved the amalgamation of three existing secondary schools using an innovative new educational model. The school of 2100 students is organized into seven individual SWIS (Schools Within a School) buildings. The SWIS philosophy is centered on creating intimate, interpersonal learning environments within a larger overall school campus. Each individual school houses 300 students, has its own staffroom, teaching facilities and corresponding outdoor , or “home area”. At a broader level, each of the seven buildings have been carefully integrated around a central communal space which facilitates flexible use by all teachers and students. The project, which has been widely applauded and publicized, was completed in 2011. A future stage which includes shared arts and sports facilities is also planned.

Wining Entry - Earth Central by AECOM

The winner of Street 11 Competition, to redesign the main street of Lilydale was announced today with the winning entry being awarded to Earth Central by AECOM. The Street 11 Competition was organised by the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects. The competition challenged entrants to redesign the main street of Lilydale to create an attractive and environmentally sustainable, pedestrian oriented town centre.

A total of thirteen submissions were received and all submissions addressed the Assessment Criteria. The jury received digital files five days prior to the closed judging session at the University of Melbourne. This process involved short listing the entries into the top five submissions for further review and discussion. After vigorous debate regarding the entries the two finalists were selected. The jury would like to thank and congratulate all entrants for their contribution to the future of both Lilydale, and the profession of Landscape Architecture.

WINNER – First Prize
Earth Central by AECOM is a proposition that intensifies both density and amenity through substantial physical change to the fabric of the Township. The jury was impressed by the clear and understandable representation of the Transport Hub, Central Park and the Living Street. Earth Central thinks big to demonstrate a realizable approach to social, economic and ecological development. The strength of this scheme lies in its ability to challenge the symmetry of the street, creating a new town centre focused around a central park.
