2013 International Architecture Awards

Seven Australian practices were recognized at the 2013 International Architecture Awards announced on 10 August 2013 by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

Sixty new buildings, commercial and institutional developments, and urban planning projects from twenty countries were selected by the New York jury of this prestigious global program. “Each of those outstanding projects positively impacts its larger community – sometimes modestly, but most often massively,” said Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, Chicago Athenaeum president. “All projects exhibit innovation in design, acute sensitivity to the environment, sustainability, adaptability to their surroundings, and provision of enjoyment to their many users. In one way or another, each finalist wowed the jury.”

Australian practices received six of the total sixty awards. Two of the projects – St. Barnabas Broadway (fjmt) and West Kimberley Regional Prison (TAG Architects and Iredale Pedersen Hook) are reviewed in the current edition of Architecture Australia.
