Emerging Architect Prize: Shaun Carter
NSW Architecture Awards
The Australian Institute of Architects
The Emerging Architect Prize recognises an individual emerging architect or an architectural collaboration’s contribution to architectural practice, education, design excellence and community involvement which advances the profession’s role in the public arena. Shaun Carter’s notable achievements and contributions to the architectural profession are considered an outstanding exemplar of a professional deserving of this prize. Established in 2004, Shaun’s practice Carterwilliamson Architects provides ongoing education, notably through inter‐office tutelage and critique.
In addition to many years of tutoring and course coordination within NSW universities, Shaun employs a dialogue of education and guidance within the studio model of his practice. Shaun is an active contributor to the evolving architectural discourse through his roles in the NSW Chapter; notably as a Chapter Councillor and Chair of the Architecture Bulletin Editorial Committee, as well as a committee member of the Gender Equity and CPD Committees. In addition, Shaun’s contributions to architectural culture expand beyond his involvement in practice and education; through his role as co‐convenor of the Inner West Architects Network, and his involvement in the curated model exhibition “Model Practice” for the 2013 Sydney Architecture Festival.
The excellence of Shaun’s work has been recognised through a number of awards programs including the NSW Architecture Awards, with Cowshed House awarded both an 2013 NSW Residential Architecture – Houses (Alteration & Additions) Award and a Sustainable Architecture Award. Shaun is an excellent ambassador for advancement of the architectural profession within the public arena. He engages with architectural discourse on a multifaceted level, and the jury looks forward to following his progress as an emerging architect.
Established in 2011, this prize recognizes an emerging architect or architectural collaboration’s contribution to architectural practice, education, design excellence and community involvement that advances the profession’s standing in the public arena.
2014 Jury: Jenna Rowe (Terrior/DARCH), Joe Agius (Cox Richardson/ NSW Chapter President), Andrew Burns (Andrew Burns Architect/2013 Emerging Architect Prize winner), Joseph Loh (SJB/DARCH Committee), Kellie Moore (AWS).
