Registrations for the National Gallery of Victoria’s 2016 Architecture Commission Design Competition are open.
December 14th, 2015
Australian architects and designers are invited to develop evocative and thought-provoking works of temporary architecture for one of Melbourne’s great civic spaces, the Grollo Equiset Garden at NGV International.
Competitors are encouraged to offer a unique response to the site, explore new propositions about architecture and design, and demonstrate innovation in material use, fabrication, sustainability and recyclability.
Tony Ellwood, Director, NGV, says the Architecture Commission Design Competition could take many forms; “a pavilion of shade and retreat, a place for play or reflection, or a venue to share food, perform or gather”.
The judges for next year’s competition include;
Corbett Lyon, Director, Lyons Architecture (VIC)
Rachel Neeson, Director, Neeson Murcutt Architects (NSW)
Emma Williamson, Practice Director, CODA (WA)
Fleur Watson, Curator, RMIT Design Hub (VIC)
The competition will be held in two stages. Stage One calls for high level design proposals, of which up to five will be chosen to receive an honorarium and proceed to Stage Two.
The NGV Architecture Commission Design Competition process is developed and delivered by City Lab. The NGV Department of Contemporary Design and Architecture is generously supported by the Hugh D. T. Williamson Foundation.
Registrations open: 1 December 2015
Stage One and Question Period open: 9 December 2015
Entries close: 25 January 2016
Final winner announced: April 2016
