'Spirit of Parsons Street' wins international award

 

The creative brief for the redevelopment of Parsons Street in Alice Springs' CBD has won an international award.

The brief, titled Revealing the Spirit of Parsons Street, was prepared by photographer Mike Gillam who is also well-known for his long-time commitment to the preservation and protection of our natural and cultural heritage within the urban environment.

Mr Gillam was commissioned to develop the brief as part of the CBD revitalisation project.

The Green Dot Awards celebrate "excellence in green products and services". Mr Gillam's unusual entry stands alongside other first prize category winners  such as the Copenhagen Wheel – an electric bicycle that generates its own energy while pedalling and braking – and the work of a Hong Kong based architectural firm, Aedas Ltd, specialising in sustainable design.
