Budding bar designers are invited to turn their minds to Perth’s Midland Railway Workshops, venue for the 2012 National Architecture Awards presentation.
A new competition from the Australian Institute of Architects calls for submissions from designers and architects to design and build a bar at the Midland Railway Workshops in Perth, for the 2012 National Architecture Awards presentation night. But be quick!
Design and build a bar to be used for the 2012 National Architecture Awards night. A proposed budget must be submitted with your bar design.
With its cavernous space concrete and brick volumes and steel columns, Midland Railway Workshops is an inspiring post-industrial backdrop in which to build a bar. It was in use from around 1904 to 1971 as the principal construction and maintenance workshop for all WAGR rolling stock.
$7,500 + GST to cover everything including all building materials, delivery and removal of building materials, construction (including a certified builder), engineers certification, return flights to Perth for you and your team (or a representative from your team), accommodation in Perth, ground transport and other ancillary costs.
The competition closes 24 September 5, 2012, with winners announced on 3 October. Final designs will be due 24 October with on-site construction starting on 31 October for completion by 1 November, the date of the 2012 National Architecture Awards. Removal of the bar is scheduled for 2 November.
What the judges want
Submissions will be assessed for innovation, functionality and style by the competition judges Shelley Penn, Brian Zuliakha, Jacqui Connor, Nick Larkworthy (Diageo Australia), Georgina Greenland (Membership, Australian Institute of Architects). The design must enhance the cavernous industrial Midland Workshops and the brand of competition sponsor Ketel One Vodka.
