The Australian Institute of Architects announced the shortlist for the 2014 National Architecture Awards on Friday 12 September. From 153 eligible projects, sixty-one were selected by the national jury to proceed to the final round of judging. The winning projects will be presented at Darwin Convention Centre on Thursday 6 November.

In all, 821 entries were received nationally across thirteen categories. Every state and territory is represented among the finalists with higher education projects dominating the public architecture category. The jury visited every shortlisted project in Australia during a two week tour.

On the jury were: Paul Berkemeier (immediate past president of the Australian Institute of Architects), Clare Cousins (Clare Cousins Architects), Justin Hill (Kerry Hill Architects), Virginia Kerridge (Virginia Kerridge Architect), and Lindy Johnson (lay juror, creative agent). Jury chair, Paul Berkemeier commented on the collaborative nature of many of the projects entered: “We were inspired by the number of projects that had informed clients working closely with architects to achieve better outcomes,” he said.
