SFA Recommits to AILA Partnership

At the 2018 International Festival of Landscape Architecture.

Street Furniture Australia has confirmed its ongoing six year partnership with the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA), signing on for a further two years.

The company has been a national sponsor and supporting corporate partner since 2014.

“AILA is proud to continue this relationship with our longer-term partner, Street Furniture Australia,” says Tim Arnold, AILA CEO.

“Street Furniture Australia has been committed to research, innovation and supporting the landscape architecture profession.

“We’ve previously joined forces on things like #BackyardExperiment and Future Street; more recently they lead a research project, Woden Experiment at the Woden Town Square in Canberra. I’m excited to see what the partnership will bring into the future.”

Street Furniture Australia will be a sponsor of the 2019 International Festival of Landscape Architecture: The Square and the Park later this year at Deakin Edge in Melbourne, as well as different AILA events and activities.

“Street Furniture Australia is pleased to be sponsoring AILA year on year,” says June Lee Boxsell, Head of Marketing and Innovation.

“The annual AILA festival is one of our favourite events in the calendar – we thoroughly enjoy helping to create memorable experiences for its members.

“We value our relationship with landscape architects and look forward to more collaborations in the future.”
