Another international win for Hansen

Hansen’s Surabaya Urban Corridor Development Strategy has received an Outstanding Award in the Analysis and Master Planning Category from the International Federation of Landscape Architecture (Asia, Africa and Middle East).

This recognition follows the IFLA (Asia Pacific) – Design Excellence Award in 2017 and Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture Awards at both state and regional levels.

The Surabaya Urban Corridor Development Strategy was undertaken by Hansen Partnership in collaboration with City Form Lab for The World Bank and the City Government of Surabaya. This landmark urban design project demonstrates the power of global design collaboration and how Australian planning and design intelligence can contribute to capacity-building across Asia.

The project applies best practice transit-oriented development (TOD) and pedestrian-oriented design (POD) to deliver a major mass rapid transport (MRT) initiative in Indonesia’s second largest city. The City Government of Surabaya sought a ‘green growth’ approach, through which public transport issues can be tackled in combination with Surabaya’s broader urban development priorities.

This project focuses on both design and implementation through a series of key development, public realm and environmental enhancement projects including affordable housing and detailed riverfront and kampong revitalisations.

Hansen is committed to continuing to make a positive contribution through our international work, with a focus on capacity-building in emerging markets through the sharing of knowledge and skills to facilitate global design collaboration.

Congratulations to the Hansen project team including Urban Design Director Craig Czarny, Urban Design Associate Gerhana Waty and Landscape Architecture Director Steve Schutt.

The gala award ceremony will be held in Singapore in July.
