    Australia’s best urban design projects and policies revealed

    The winners of the 2017 Australian Urban Design Awards were announced at a ceremony in Brisbane on Wednesday night.

    From a shortlist of 33 projects, policies and initiatives, three entries were named winners while a further nine received commendations.

    One of these three winners was Tonsley Innovation District by Oxigen, Woods Bagot, KBR, WSP, Tridente Architects and RenewalSA. The South Australian project represents Australia’s first ‘innovation district’. The space brings together leading institutions and companies to connect with start-ups, business incubators and accelerators, with a focus on innovation, sustainability and job creation. The project received the Award for Delivered Outcome – Large Scale.

    Another winner was the Orange Regional Museum by Crone. The museum in regional New South Wales boasts an expansive grass roof, which is a continuation of the ground-level lawn. The roof extends the site’s available public green space and enhances it with a vantage point across the city. This defining sustainability feature was installed by green roof wall company, Junglefy. The project received the Award for Delivered Outcome – Small Scale.

    The winner of the Policies, Programs and Concepts – Large Scale category was the Better Placed – An integrated design policy for the built environment of New South Wales by Government Architect New South Wales.
