ArchiTeam Awards 2019 finalists
ArchiTeam Cooperative’s Annual Awards program will showcase the very best in architecture from Australia’s small, medium and emerging architects. With over 140 entries this year, ArchiTeam has made some changes recently to how this awards fortnight will exhibit all entries. Collaborating with partner Big Plans Melbourne, this year’s exhibition will be projected around their warehouse space in North Melbourne, with each finalist having their entry’s floorplan projected at 1:1 scale on the floor as their project images are beamed around the room. It will make for a spectacular opening night on Wednesday 13 November.
In 2019, ArchiTeam committed their support to the Architects Declare campaign, declaring a climate emergency. As part of the cooperative’s actions to reduce their carbon footprint, this year sees the demise of foam core awards boards (the once popular foam-filled presentation boards that many in the industry have used sinceuUniversity days), due to concerns of the amount of boards sent straight to landfill.
Out of the 140 entries, 24 were selected as finalists in the six categories. Recently-added sponsored awards, Brickworks Materiality Award and the Emerging Architect award sponsored by Vectorworks will also be announced on the opening night, along with the Sustainability Medal, Small Project Medal and grand prize – The ArchiTeam Medal.
The Residential New Award sponsored by Australian Window Systems (AWS) sees eight finalists in the running for the prize, as well as a the AWS photography package valued at $2500.
The Commercial Award, sponsored by The Built Environment Channel (BEC) who are providing an additional prize of a Serif 2019 43″ QLED 4K HDR Smart TV, has three finalists.
This year sees the most finalists in the Residential Alterations and Additions award in the history of the ArchiTeam Awards, with a total of 21 finalists. The Unbuilt Award has three finalists who vary from a multi-residential complex to an ingenious table design.
In a category that aims to celebrate architecture that helps shape neighbourhoods and support our communities, the three finalists in the Community Award category highlight the variety of projects that aim to provide a positive impact.
With two finalists, this year the Contribution Award (sponsored by Melbourne School of Design) category, recognises contribution and/or innovation to architecture beyond the design and production of buildings.
The winners will be announced at the Awards Exhibition Opening Night – 7pm Wednesday 13 November.
