The Australian Achievement In Architecture Awards take the personal approach
November 17th, 2009
Australia’s Gold Medal for Architecture will headline a new annual award ceremony being introduced by the AIA, highlighting the achievements of industry professionals.
The National Architecture Awards have been running since 1981, showcasing the best of home grown projects based on their quality of conception, client satisfaction, environmental performance and their architectural contribution.
The Institute’s National President, Melinda Dodson hopes that the new ‘people-focused’ event will ensure a higher level of recognition for the work of the individual input on projects.
“Headlined by the Australian Gold Medal for Architecture announcement, the Australian Achievement in Architecture Awards will include the Glenn Murcutt Student Prize, Neville Quarry Architectural Education Prize, Student Prize for the Advancement of Architecture and Dulux Study Tour winners,” Ms Dodson said.
The AIA say there is also scope for the development of new prizes recognising individuals making a contribution to the architectural profession.
The one-hour cocktail-event ceremony will be held in a different state each year from March 2010.
