The Australian Institute of Architects recently announced the winners of the 2016 Western Australia (WA) Architecture Awards at Crown Perth’s Grand Ballroom. The highest honour of the evening, the George Temple Poole Award went to two projects for the first time in the award’s history - the City of Perth Library and Public Plaza and the State Buildings, both designed by Kerry Hill Architects with the latter in collaboration with Palassis Architects (Heritage Architect).

This year, the Enduring Architecture Award was renamed in recognition of Richard Roach Jewell, a long-serving public works architect in Western Australia. The award went to Howlett and Bailey Architects for the Perth Concert Hall. The practice received the award for the second year in a row, having won last year for Council House.
