Shortlist announced: 2020 NSW Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Architects has announced that 122 entries across 11 categories have been shortlisted in the 2020 NSW Architecture Awards.

The shortlist includes a wide range of projects covering public, educational, cultural, residential and commercial architecture, as well as small public amenities and sustainable architecture.

NSW chapter president Kathlyn Loseby said “With the current health and economic crisis prompting us all to reflect more deeply on the nature of spaces – especially those we are spending lots of time in – coming together to celebrate the value that architecture brings to the community is more important than ever.”

The physical distancing and lockdown restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic have caused changed to how the awards program is run. “Our 2020 jurors have worked hard to judge entries entirely remotely and we commend everyone for their pursuit of outstanding design to ensure a worthy legacy of work in local communities,” said jury chair Peter Poulet.

The winners will be announced in the coming months and entries that win a named award or chapter award will progress to National Architecture Awards later in the year.
