2015 Victorian Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Architects announced the winners of the 2015 Victorian Architecture Awards at an evening ceremony on Friday 26 June at Shed 14 in Melbourne’s Docklands.

Thirty-eight awards were given across 15 categories, including a new category for Educational Architecture. The Institute also announced three Victorian Chapter awards – the Melbourne Prize, Regional Prize and Victorian Architecture Medal.

The biggest winner on the night was ARM Architecture, which secured five awards and a commendation for its latest extension to the Shrine of Remembrance, plus a Bates Smart Architecture in the Media Award for the new book on the practice, Mongrel Rapture: The Architecture of Ashton Raggatt McDougall (Uro Publications, 2015).
