2016 Queensland Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Architects has announced the winners of the 2016 Queensland Architecture Awards.

A total of 83 projects were under consideration for state honours, with 48 projects receiving awards and commendations on the night and a number of projects receiving multiple accolades.

The biggest winner of the night was University of Queensland Oral Health Centre by Cox Rayner Architects with Hames Sharley and Conrad Gargett Riddel, which received awards for Interior Architecture and Sustainable Architecture as well as the F. D. G. Stanley Award for Public Architecture. The jury described the project, which is Australia’s largest public dentist, as “establishing a unique benchmark.”

Queensland chapter president, Bruce Wolfe, congratulated all winners and entrants for continuing to push boundaries and championing quality design in all areas of architectural practice.

“It is inspiring to see such a range of incredible designs and project typologies happening all over the state and particularly heartening to see such strong sustainable elements at the core of many projects, evident in the awarding and commending of more projects for Sustainable Architecture than in any other category,” Wolfe said.

Projects that received a Named Award or Award are now in the running for the 2016 National Architecture Awards to be announced in November.
