The quantity of submissions in this year’s awards has again grown in number. This circumstance is reasonably a product of the expanding resources industries in the state. Current indications are that this expansion will continue and hopefully provide further challenges for the architectural profession and the building industry across the state.
This year there were 141 entries in the various categories. These are scattered across the state. As an example, the southernmost project in Albany is approximately 2,600 kilometres away from the most northern project in Kununurra. Not only are these distances substantial but the geography of the two places is almost diametrically opposed.
While there are a number of regional practices, a significant amount of the design work in the state comes out of Perth. As a consequence, the need for architects in WA to be able to deal with diverse environmental conditions throughout the state is of utmost importance. The projects submitted indicate that concerted efforts are being made to address the design opportunities presented by this unique situation.
