Shortlist revealed: 2017 National Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Architects has announced the shortlist for the 2017 National Architecture Awards.

From a record 983 entries across state and territory chapter awards programs, 205 were eligible for judging by the national jury, which has shortlisted 72 projects, which will vie for the prestigious awards.

Jury chair Ken Maher said the entries exemplified “the positive impact architecture has on our cities, towns and landscapes.

“We were heartened by the maturity, creativity and accomplishment demonstrated by the profession across the board, from well-recognized practitioners to emerging practices and younger architects.

“The remarkable testimonies from clients were touching – many revealed that they had gained a true understanding of the value of architecture through undertaking their projects.”

The jury shortlisted a record number of projects in the Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing category, which reflects the recent apartment construction boom, particularly in the eastern states.

The jury also noted a large number of educational projects which showed “inventive design thinking that has expanded the pedagogic and experiential agendas.”

In addition to the jury selected awards, the Institute will launch the annual People’s Choice award on World Architecture Day, 2 October, and invite the public to vote for their favourite residential project from the shortlist.

The winners of the 2017 National Architecture Awards will be announced at Albert Hall in Canberra on 2 November.
