The 2020 programme for the Sustainability Awards is set to be a markedly different affair from the previous year – not least due to its first-time venture down to Melbourne in its 14th year.
June 11th, 2020
Since Architecture & Design held the last Sustainability Awards last year, it has been a huge seven months, both domestically and internationally. It is also a fact that sustainability and environmentally-sustainable design have not been immune from the huge shifts we have seem both at home and abroad.
However, while news on the climate has somewhat slowed down during the global pandemic, the fact remains that sustainable design is now more important than ever, both environmentally and economically.
So with that said, it is Architecture & Design’s pleasure to officially open entries to the 2020 Sustainability Awards.
Now in its 14th year of Architecture & Design running the awards, this year there will be 16 categories, some of which will include brand-new categories such as Sustainable Emerging Architect / Designer, Smart Building and Urban & Landscape.
Being held for the first time ever in Melbourne too will be a novelty, however what will remain a constant is Architecture & Design’s desire to recognise and reward the pinnacle of sustainable design in Australia.
And of course, for the day event, Architecture & Design will hold their now industry-leading panel event, now called the Sustainability Summit, which will bring together the highest calibre of ideas and innovation and you’re invited and encouraged to be an integral part of it.
Branko Miletic wishes all the entrants the best of luck and to ensure that their entry is directed to the correct category, the 16 2020 Sustainability Awards categories are as follows:
Emerging Sustainable Architect / Designer
Women in Sustainability
Commercial Architecture (Large)
Commercial Architecture (Small)

Lastly, a big thank you goes out to the partners, without who, this event would not be the success that it has become.
