Call for Nominations
Nominations are now open for the 2010 Australia Award for Urban Design. This is your opportunity to highlight leading examples of urban design in Australia.
The Australia Award for Urban Design was created by then-PM Keating’s Urban Design Taskforce, and was first awarded in 1996. The Prime Minister, The Hon. Kevin Rudd, is now Patron of the Award. The Award was established to recognise recent urban design projects of high quality in Australia – and to encourage cities, towns and emerging settlements of all sizes to strive similarly for improvement. It acknowledges the critical role of good urban design in the development of our cities and towns.
The Australia Award for Urban Design is hosted by the Planning Institute of Australia, with support from the Australian Institute of Architects, Property Council of Australia, Green Building Council of Australia, Association of Consulting Engineers Australia and the Urban Design Forum.
Have you been involved in a recent project demonstrating excellence and innovation in all elements of urban design? Are you aware of recent Australian urban design initiatives, projects or developments that deserve national recognition?
