2010 National Architecture Awards
Until 4pm Friday 26 November
A public exhibition of Australia’s latest award-winning architecture – designed by the nation’s top architects and photographed by our most talented architectural photographers.
The 2010 National Architecture Awards Exhibition features the 33 projects announced last night as winners of this year’s Australian Institute of Architects’ National Architecture Awards. (The winners were announced at a special ceremony last night at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.) To coincide, full-colour glossy images of all projects will be on public display at the Gallery of Australian Design on the foreshore of Lake Burley Griffin from today.
Winning projects by leading architects including Peter Stutchbury Architecture, Donovan Hill, WOHA, Durbach Block Architects, Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp, Wood/Marsh, Kerry Hill Architects, and HASSELL are featured in the exhibition. Leading photographers featured include John Gollings, Brett Boardman, Anthony Browell, Jon Linkins, Earl Carter, Ray Joyce, Peter Bennetts, and Diana Snape.
Visitors can view the home described by this year’s awards jury as ‘impossible to leave’ and crowned ‘best residential’ project in Australia, or the award-winning house working as both home and art museum. The great depth and breadth of public architecture projects with exemplary ‘community spirit’ and beauty will also be a highlight.
The diverse range of international projects receiving awards this year will also feature. Visitors can admire the innovation and creativity of this year’s Jørn Utzon Award for International Architecture – the Met apartment building in central Bangkok, or delight at the sublime serenity of the Wall House on the Japanese coast, or the Alila Villas on the northern Indonesian coast.
