In a big year for the territory with Centenary celebrations and the 25th anniversary of the opening of Parliament House, the ACT Award entries offer an insight into current public and private architectural works.

‘The 2013 ACT Architecture Awards will not only be a celebration of  the entries from this year but also an opportunity to reflect on the impressive architectural legacy created in the territory over the last one hundred years,’ ACT Chapter President Tony Trobe said. 

‘Architecture plays a vital role in our communities from homes and offices to public facilities and master planning, the annual awards are a unique chance to recognise and reward the architects and clients who are achieving design excellence and in turn improving our towns and cities,’ Mr Trobe said. 

Tonkin Zulaikha Greer’s National Arboretum, EAST Hotel by Cox Architecture and the Realm Precinct by Colin Stewart Architects are among well-known projects in the running for awards as well as the chance to be recognised in the National Architecture Awards at the Sydney Opera House on 7 November.

Projects are competing in heritage, interior, small project, commercial, public, residential – houses and multiple housing, public architecture and urban design categories.
