Queensland Architecture Awards 2010

Regional architecture dominates the Queensland Architecture Institute Awards.


June 22nd, 2010

The Awards might have been announced in Brisbane this year, but it wasn’t Queensland’s capital that scooped the majority of the top prizes as seen across other states.
Awards Jury Director Bud Brannigan said projects outside Brisbane, and from regions across Queensland, claimed 26 of this year’s 47 awards and commendations.
Seven of the State’s 10 best new public architecture projects and four of the State’s six best new urban design projects went to regional projects.
 “It’s commendable to see such a high proportion of projects entered into the public architecture category across the State, a trend which reflects the growing confidence of government organisations and regional councils in working with architects on key projects,”  Mr Brannigan said.
This year’s top public architecture winner was the F.D.G Stanley Award for Public Architecture, which went to the Ipswich Justice Precinct (pictured above) by Cox Rayner Architects with ABM Architects.

It also received this year’s Art and Architecture Prize and the G.H.M. Addison Award for Interior Architecture.
