The Australian Institute of Architects announced the 2017 NSW Architecture Awads at Luna Park on 1 July.

One of the state’s most distinguished awards, the Sulman Medal for Public Architecture, was awarded to the Orange Regional Museum by Crone Architects for its “simple, bold and confident moves” that have “created a destination for locals and visitors,” as the jury noted.

Residential categories also figured strongly in the awards with multiple housing being the largest category in the awards. From a strong field of 34 entries the jury shortlisted 14 projects and bestowed nine awards and commendations.    

NSW chapter president Andrew Nimmo said, “Affordability and diversity of housing is an important community issue and while we need to have bigger cities to accommodate population growth, the challenge is to make better cities with increased open space and amenity and more reliable public transport and infrastructure,” Nimmo said.

“Many of these entries contribute to addressing these issues through inventive design solutions.”

Fittingly, the Enduring Architecture Award – awarded to buildings older than twenty-five years that have stood the test of time – to 17 Wylde St, a 1948 design of Aaron M. Bolot, the eponymous architect of the Institute’s highest honour in NSW Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing, which was presented to Candalepas Associates for their President Avenue project. The jury noted the project “sets an ambitious agenda, changing the expectations of apartment living in the outer suburbs and suggesting how an increased density can be sustainably and sensitively achieved.”

In total the jury bestowed 66 awards and commendations. Projects that received a Named Award or Award at the NSW Architecture Awards will now progress to the National Architecture Awards to be announced in Canberra on Thursday 2 November.
