The Jury Chair, Immediate Past President, Paul Berkemeier, was impressed with the collaborative and generous nature of many of the projects entered in the awards program.
‘As a jury and as members of the profession, we were inspired by the number of projects that had informed clients working closely with the architects to achieve better outcomes. In many instances, this relationship allowed the project to go well and truly above and beyond the original brief,’ Mr Berkemeier said.
‘The process of selecting the shortlist was a challenging one, which the jury made with careful deliberation. The projects that were eligible were of outstanding quality and we believe the resulting shortlist represents the best of the best.
‘All eligible and shortlisted entrants should be very proud of the work they have achieved; their projects are invaluable in promoting the exceptional work of Australian architects both here and overseas.’
Paul Berkemeier was joined on the jury by Clare Cousins, Justin Hill, Virginia Kerridge and Lindy Johnson. The jury visited all shortlisted projects, except international works, during a two week tour.
This year, a total of 821 entries was received for the awards program across the 13 national categories.
The National Architecture Awards will be held at the Darwin Convention Centre on Thursday 6 November.
