Have you been involved in a recent project demonstrating excellence and innovation in all elements of urban design? Nominations for the 2014 Australia Award for Urban Design are now open and will close on Wednesday 28 May, 2014.
Since their foundation by Prime Minister Paul Keating in 1996, the Australia Award for Urban Design has encouraged cities, towns and emerging settlements of all sizes to strive for better urban design practice.
Planning Institute Australia hosts the Awards with support from the Australian Institute of Architects, Property Council of Australia, Green Building Council of Australia, Consult Australia, Australian Institute of Landscape Architects and Urban Design Forum.
PIA believes that recognising excellence and best practice promotes the ongoing growth and development of urban design in Australia. It facilitates professional recognition and exposure of urban design work to a national audience. It also showcases the best urban design Australia has to offer. It is a prestigious Award that brings with it accolades from the multiple disciplines that contribute to good urban design.
We strongly encourage individuals, groups and organisations to enter. Download the Nomination Booklet at http://www.planning.org.au/documents/item/5888 for more information, and get involved. Nomination close Wednesday 28 May.
