This year’s Landscape Institute Awards shortlist includes a retrofitting project across three housing estates in Hammersmith and Fulham, west London, the masterplan and landscape for one of the 10 NHS Healthy New Towns projects, a farm on a tower block, the Crossrail roof garden and a road which snakes down the west coast of Ireland, The Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s first long distance driving route.

The wide variety of designs were part of a bumper crop of submitted projects, in which is the biggest awards since the institute's competition went annual 10 years ago. 

Announcing the list of finalists today Landscape Institute president Merrick Denton-Thompson said: "Landscape is the primary consideration in delivering places where people want to be; want to work; want to innovate. It demands the vision of a designer, underpinned by scientific and technical rigour.

"This year’s shortlist highlights more how than ever, how landscape architects create great places by working with the built and natural environment to create innovative spaces, wildlife habitats and sustainable infrastructure."

The winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony held at The Brewery, central London on 24 November. The full shortlist is:
