Walter & Oliver Tunbridge Award for Building of the Year

JCU Education Central Wilson (Townsville) Wilson Architects with Architects North 

Jury comment: James Cook University’s Education Central is the result of an intense reassessment by the architect and the University as to how contemporary students can learn. The resulting building and spaces are extraordinarily diverse and effective providing an enormously successful learning environment and a major contribution to the university’s urban landscape.

Enduring Architecture Prize

Townsville City Council Administrative Building – Lund Hutton Newell and Paulsen

Jury comment: This building is a remarkable arrangement of a series of required administration spaces around a central covered court that provides the people of Townsville with one of its most important civic spaces. The development in its overall scheme through to innovative detailed elements is entirely appropriate to the climate and context.
