In push to improve development, City of Melbourne adds Urban Design category to Melbourne Awards

The City of Melbourne has announced a refresh of its annual awards program – the Melbourne Awards – adding a new category for outstanding urban design projects.

The Urban Design category is one of seven new categories, and is part of a broader push to increase the quality of the built environment in the city following the release of the Central Melbourne Design Guide, which itself won an Australian Urban Design Award in 2018.

Submissions to the Urban Design category will be evaluated by a jury pool, which includes Amy Muir (Muir Architecture, Victorian chapter president of the Australian Institute of Architects), Martyn Hook (dean, School of Architecture and Urban Design) and Tim Leslie (Bates Smart).

Other awards will be given in environment, Aboriginal Melbourne, arts and events, hospitality and health and wellbeing categories.

Basic registrations of interest close on 7 June, while full submissions close on 12 July.
