The shortlist for the 2022 New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects (NZILA) Awards includes twelve projects delivered by the Auckland Council group – Auckland Transport, Eke Panuku, Tūpuna Maunga Authority and Auckland Council. Most of the shortlisted projects are the product of innovative collaborative ways of working alongside mana whenua. Many of the integrated design elements feature the work of Māori artists and hold mana whenua narratives, histories and values at their essence.
