2019 International Chapter Architecture Awards

The work of Australian architects around the world has been honoured at the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2019 International Chapter Awards.

Nine awards and two commendations were handed out at an announcement in Dubai attended by the Institute’s national president Helen Lochhead, international chapter chair Samantha Cotterell, awards chair Annelise Tiller, and commissioner general Expo 2020 Justin McGowan.

The awards winners range from a hotel celebrating Chinese culture in a preserved a 2,000-year old forest to an open air university in Singapore.

Cotterell said, “These projects from our international members of the Institute range from large scale commercial developments to small and poetic public works.

“They demonstrate the vision and the talent of our members of the Australian architecture profession, who courageously and ambitiously set out to lend their voice to a global architectural conversation.
“These projects are a proud representation of the growing international presence of our design professionals.”
