Winning design duo Justin Sayarath and Sarah Rodriguez with Transurban CEO Scott Charlton at the awards night.
The vivid display, which incorporates solar power, energy efficient lighting and recycled materials was designed to breathe new life into an unused site next to the Hills M2 in Macquarie Park, Sydney.
Equal second place winner Interleaves by Harding Storch
The Judging Panel awarded joint second place to the Harding Storch Team for their idea Interleaves and to the Loose Furniture Studio Team for Solar Weave.
The Sydney site is the second project to be launched as part of our Motorscapes Program which regenerates areas along our motorway through replanting native and installing community artwork to add long-term environmental and social value for our customers and the community.

The first project underway in the Motorscapes Program is the Power Street Loop next to CityLink in Melbourne's arts and cultural precinct. Feasibility assessment has been completed for this project and construction of the winning design idea Habitat Filter starts in March 2016.
Transurban will now move into a feasibility phase for the Macquarie Park site and assess the constructability of the three prize-winning ideas. We hope to install one of these ideas on the site in the near future.
