At the recent AILA awards night Julie Marler, Landscape Co-Principal of Phillips Marler, was awarded an AILA Fellowship. The award recognised her twenty plus years of practice and active advocacy for the profession.
“I was thrilled to receive the AILA Fellowship at the recent NSW Awards night. The recognition of peers is a celebration of practice and professional engagement and a source of inspiration”.
The award acknowledged ‘Julie’s achievements in practice – award winning projects, her active role in the Institute and her contribution to the profession of Landscape Architecture’
“Landscape Architecture is a mixture of art and science”, explained Julie. “Technically, we’re growing as a profession. It’s an expansive discipline and there are few disciplines that are so environment focused. Fundamentally, it’s about the environment and nature. No other profession has this investment in such an important area for the future.”
