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 since University days), due to concerns of the number of boards sent straight to landfill.
Out of the 140 entries, 24 were selected as finalists in the 6 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.
