Jury citation

Barangaroo House in Barangaroo, Sydney is a rare example of the standalone restaurant building typology. Located on a prominent waterfront site, its facade presents as three woven baskets floating above one another with a sense of movement and balance. The building occupies a tight square site that is seen in the round and from overhead. The response was to curve the building elements in both plan and section, making an organic, abstract form. At once an occupiable piece of art and a deft resolution of technical challenges, Barangaroo House confidently enriches the public realm of the precinct.
