Jury Overview The Victorian Chapter Awards this year were decided by 45 jurors across 15 separate juries, each panel carefully constructed to offer a complementary range of age, opinion and expertise. Such a considerable investment of time refl ects the passion and heated debate that are part of the Victorian awards process each year. Presentations to juries, running for a full day over eight parallel sessions, have become a key event on the local calendar, the rooms packed with students, supporters and curious architects of all ages. The energy and inclusiveness of this highly competitive and public process keep the Victorian system relevant and full of surprises.

The current economic boom in WA and the high level of architectural activity have put enormous workload pressure on practices, including an inability to attract sufficient staff, and it is commendable that the highest standards of design are still being achieved. Increased attention was paid to sustainability across all categories. Perhaps in future this should be a basic criterion rather than a special category. There were wonderful stories of successful collaboration between architect, client and builder, and it’s always a pleasure for judges to be shown over a project by a proud and clearly delighted owner.

Head-to-head and side-by-side comparisons of GoMA and the State Library have preoccupied the public in Brisbane, but there has been extremely fine and highly competitive work in every category and across the state. Donovan Hill, Wilson, Kirk, Fairweather Proberts and Russell have all submitted exceptional houses, and the latest public, commercial and urban designs of Cox Rayner stand alongside one of Seidler’s last major projects. The new small projects work is delightful, but perhaps the most exciting work is found in multi-residential design. Innovative and diverse projects (three by Donovan Hill) demonstrate sustained, intelligent engagement with the issue of contemporary living at higher densities.
