The bright pink Lightpath cycleway won the transport award at the World Architecture Festival.

The award for World Landscape of the Year went to a wetland reserve in Massey North, which features woven timber structures inspired by the shapes of eel baskets.

Lightpath was designed by Monk McKenzie and Landlab, while the Kopupaka Reserve wetland was designed by archictects Isthmus.
