The intent and scope of the Award is wideranging – given for design initiatives, projects, developments, or publications that will make a significant difference to the places, spaces, buildings and infrastructure of our cities and towns. The criteria are comprehensive: assessing how the submissions demonstrate excellence; how they contribute to a wider appreciation of urban design; and how they address contemporary social and cultural issues, historic settings, change and adaptation, and ecological considerations.
The Award is hosted by Planning Institute of Australia, with support from Australian Institute of Architects, Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, Property Council of Australia, Green Building Council of Australia, Consult Australia (Association of Consulting Engineers Australia), and the Urban Design Forum. Details of the Award entry requirements will be posted on the various websites of these organisations in April. What have you done recently that deserves recognition?
