John Dalton Award for Building of the Year (joint winners)

Translational Research Institute – Wilson Architects + Donovan Hill Architects in Association (Public Architecture)

Jury comment: A great sense of generosity and enjoyability is ingrained into every aspect of this laboratory building. It offers a series of lavishly-crafted spaces across a range of scales that redefine not only the cramped campus in which it is located, but also the laboratory building typology itself.

One One One Eagle Street – Cox Rayner Architects (Commercial Architecture)

Jury comment: This project ingeniously resolved complex planning constraints to realise a highly engaging and distinctive architectural centrepiece within the Seidler master planned precinct. The organic structural-led design solution overtly expresses itself to create a uniquely sculptural building that transcends normal commercial imperatives and delivers an exemplary new landmark tower.
