2018 Newcastle Architecture Awards winners revealed

The Australian Institute of Architects announced the winners of the 2018 Newcastle Architecture Awards on Friday 23 March.

The night’s top award, the Newcastle Jury Prize, went to the University of Newcastle’s new “vertical campus,” NeW Space, designed by Lyons and EJE Architecture.

The jury noted the building is “an exemplar of design for ‘new generation’ learning, urban renewal, and of civic place making, drawing together a complex brief of interlocking educational and public spaces.” The building also received awards in the Urban Design, Educational Architecture and Interior Architecture categories.

The Newcastle Architecture Awards received a record number entries in 2018, a demonstration of the breadth of work undertaken across a number categories.

“Architects are contributing to providing better environments in Newcastle across all spheres – and Newcastle seems to have an abundance of refreshingly down to earth, friendly, welcoming architects and supportive, happy, enlightened clients who are immensely proud of their projects,” said Sam Crawford, jury chair. “All of this bodes well for the future.”

Projects that have won awards are now eligible for the NSW Architecture Awards which will be announced on 6 July.

The winners are:
