The 2015 Queensland Architecture Awards were announced on 26 June 2015 in Brisbane.

From the 72 projects recognized in the seven Regional Architecture Awards, 43 received state recognition from the Australian Institute of Architects.

Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital by Conrad Gargett Lyons was the most awarded project, taking home four awards including the F D G Stanley Award for Public Architecture and the Karl Langer Award for Urban Design.

“The Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital transforms a large and complex piece of healthcare infrastructure into a series of framed moments which both surprise and delight,” said the jury. “The hospital establishes a new benchmark in paediatric healthcare for the state … [bringing] delight and diversion to the lives of sick children and the people who care for them.”

All projects recognized by the jury with an award or named award will proceed to the National Architecture Awards to be announced in Brisbane on 5 November 2015.
