    2017 ACT Architecture Awards winners announced

    Nicholas Rider

    Over the weekend, 25 architectural projects were recognised at the 2017 ACT Architecture Awards.

    Among these awarded projects was Constitution Avenue by NCA, JILA, Hill Thalis, SMEC and AECOM, which received the ACT’s highest architecture honour, the Canberra Medallion. The upgraded boulevard – which links City Hill to the suburb of Russell – was also recognised with the Sir John Overall Award for Urban Design.

    “Its character is responsive to its particular location and adjacency, with subtle changes in scale and detail – from civic to boulevard, bushland to ceremonial – yet it successfully conveys integrated design aspirations,” says the jury.

    “The NCA in its wisdom gathered a team of collaborators to achieve an outcome of immense public worth, and in doing so, have given us an exemplar to plan, design and deliver public domain works.”

    There were several other projects that also received multiple awards. For instance, NewActon Nishi by Fender Katsalidis Architects and Corner House by Joanna Nelson Architect.

    NewActon Nishi was acknowledged with an Award for Commercial Architecture and the Sydney Ancher Award for Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing.

    Corner House was presented with the ACT Award for Small Project Architecture and the Derek Wrigley Award for Sustainable Architecture.

    Named award and award winners will now progress to the National Architecture Awards, which will be announced in Canberra on 2 November.
