Emerging Architect Prize winner: Kelly Rattigan

Jury citation

Out of a remarkable field from every state of Australia, Kelly Rattigan is this year’s deserving winner of the National Emerging Architect Prize.

Rattigan has made a significant contribution to the profession through her ongoing commitment to education and the Institute and through her own successful and growing architectural practice.

The jury was exceedingly impressed with Kelly’s substantial array of built work in the areas of aged care, health, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and social housing. She has demonstrated outstanding leadership in advocating for and providing design for disadvantaged members of the community, particularly Indigenous and rural communities, illustrating her admirable “design is for all” theoretical position. Her work for the disadvantaged, where fees and budgets are often insurmountable obstacles to the design and production of architecture, are for Rattigan a challenge rather than an impediment.

Rattigan has achieved excellence in architectural practice and has shown initiative, ambition, empathy and leadership. She serves as an exceptionally strong role model for emerging practitioners.

It is with great pleasure that the jury has awarded Kelly Rattigan the National Emerging Architect Prize.
