Australian Institute of Architects Fellows John Gollings and Donald Goldsworthy were honoured on the occasion of Australia Day for their contribution to the architecture industry.
Gollings was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia for ‘significant service to photography through documentation of iconic architectural landmarks in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region’. Mr Goldsworthy was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia ‘for service to architecture and urban design’.
Made an Honorary Fellow of the Institute in 2004, John Gollings has received numerous Institute honours including the 2013 William J Mitchell International Committee Prize, the 1990 and 1998 President’s Award, and the 2008 Victorian President’s Prize.
As Co-Creative Director of the Australian Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2010, Gollings worked with Ivan Rijavek to create the exhibition ‘Now and When’, which represented new paradigms for the city of the future in 3D, juxtaposed with the current condition of Australian cities photographed from a helicopter.
A Fellow of the Victorian Chapter since 2010, Donald Goldsworthy established his own practice in 1995 providing consultancy across architecture, strategic planning, asset management, urban design and project procurement.
Goldsworthy has worked with the City of Greater Bendigo, the Department of Planning and Development for the Victorian State Government, and the Rehabilitation and Feasibility Branch for the Ministry of Housing.
