Two architecture students take out this yearâ€™s COLORBONDÂ® steel Biennale Prize with designs for two very different cities.
August 4th, 2008
Daniel Griffin (RMIT University) and Jade Myers (University of Queensland) will share the $8000 COLORBOND® steel Biennale Prize for designs that are worlds apart.
The winning designs focus on two vastly different cities – Brisbane, Queensland, and Jenin in the West Bank. Jade Myers’ project looks at a redevelopment and redefinition of the Queensland capital, creating a distinct centre, while Daniel Griffin’s design for the Maternity Hospital and Epigenetic Research Facility in Jenin explores a melding of Western and Arabic architectures.
The winners beat 159 students from 16 Australian architecture schools. The 10 finalist designs will now form a travelling exhibition visiting architecture schools over the next 18 months.
The COLORBOND® steel Biennale Prize recognises outstanding design work and was open to students enrolled in Institute-recognised architecture courses in 2007.
