    The eagerly anticipated 2015 Victorian Architecture Awards have been revealed by the Australian Institute of Architects and a staggering 34 prizes handed out in what was a massive year for architecture in the state.

    Victorian Chapter President Peter Malatt was on hand to announce the winners of the 12 category prizes, representing a range of architecture from residential to public design, at the gala event on 26 June.

     “The Victorian Chapter is thrilled by the quality of entrants in the 2015 Victorian Architecture Awards,” Malatt said.

    “The winning practices have showcased beautiful, user-centric and sustainable design worth recognising not just for the aesthetic, but also for the vital role they play in our State’s wellbeing and development.”

    The big winners from the 2015 program are ARM Architecture and Jackson Clements Burrows Architects who won several prizes across several major categories including Heritage, Public Architecture, Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing, Urban Design and Small Project Architecture.

    ARM took the most prestigious prize, the Victorian Architecture Medal, for their work on the Shrine of Remembrance – Galleries of Remembrance. Amy Muir, Chair of Juries describing it as a “robust and sympathetic in its approach to detailing and built execution, the Stage Two addition provides an exemplar, quality architectural intervention which received unanimous support as the winner of the 2015 Victorian Architectural Medal.”

    Named Award and Architecture Award winners go on to compete for National Architecture Awards, announced in November.
