Colleagues who have participated in a National Architecture Awards jury tour in past years have enthused about the experience and confided that it was one of the highlights of their architectural careers. Having just finished the 2014 tour, I can attest that they were spot-on. It was a great adventure and I was lucky to have been joined by such a wonderful group of jurors: Virginia Kerridge from Sydney, Justin Hill from Singapore, Clare Cousins from Melbourne and Lindy Johnson from Brisbane. I am particularly grateful to Virginia and Justin, who were able to join the jury at short notice to replace two jurors who had to withdraw at the last moment.
The Institute’s awards program is vitally important for recognizing outstanding work. It helps us as a profession to promote good design to the broader community, raising the bar in the process. This year it was inspiring to see so many projects of such outstanding quality from all around Australia, as well as internationally. The awards give the profession a chance to recognize and celebrate real achievement and innovation, no matter what the scale or budget.
