Australians successful at WAF awards

The presentation of the WAF Awards is taking place during the largest global celebration of architecture – the World Architecture Festival, which is being held at the Centre Convencions International Barcelona (CCIB) from 2 to 4 November.

Two Australian projects received awards on day one of the festival.

World Transport Building of the Year

Kurilpa Bridge, Brisbane, by Cox Architecture/Cox Rayner Architects
Kurilpa Bridge provides a new pedestrian and cycle connection across Brisbane’s river but also forms a new public space, as well as being a symbol for art, science, technology and healthy living.

World House of the Year

Small House, Sydney, by Domenic Alvaro
The ultra-compact vertical house is located in an urban setting and features an outdoor room on the top floor. It was designed by Alvaro not only to be his own home, but also to test a development model for downtown urban living as an alternative to the ubiquitous luxury apartment.

Small House by Domenic Alvaro also won the National Award for Small Project Architecture at the 2011 National Architecture Awards on Thursday 3 November. Read more about Small House here.
