Hassell’s Adelaide Zoo wins 5 awards to dominate this year’s SA Architecture Awards.
July 7th, 2010
On Friday 2 July at a special ceremony in Adelaide, 28 awards were presented by the AIA to the best projects completed in South Australia.
Jury Chair Andrew Vorrasi noted that a total of 81 submissions had been received, showing “ that the GFC has had little or no impact on the projects already committed or on the quality of work being delivered by South Australian architects.”
“Once again interstate architects have returned to South Australia to collect a share of awards – of the 28 awards presented, four went to interstate architects.”
The Adelaide Zoo Entrance Precinct was awarded the prestigious Jack McConnell Award for Public Architecture, the top Robert Dickson Award for Interior Architecture, an Urban Design Architecture Award and a Sustainable Architecture Award.
The Adelaide Zoo Panda Exhibit by HASSELL also received a Public Architecture Commendation.
“With the removal of the former introverted entry wall and gate and the establishment of a new integrated entry precinct accessed off Botanic Park, the Adelaide Zoo has all of a sudden come of age,” the jury said.
