David Lindner Prize – Open for Entries until 27 May 2016!!

David Linder Prize

Do you have ideas for a research proposal which looks at issues concerning the public realm and urban renewal? Apply for the 2016 David Lindner Prize to win funding of $5,000 towards carrying out your research.

This prize aims to inspire graduates and emerging architects through research to engage in important and challenging design issues involving the public realm. Dedicated to encouraging new research on architecture in the public realm, the prize seeks submissions exploring a broad range of topics relevant to current architectural discourse in Australia and internationally. The prize is awarded annually to an individual whose submission generates ideas for solving real challenges facing our cities, and contributes to the profession as well as the broader community.

The prize was established in memory of David Lindner, a talented young Sydney architect who tragically disappeared in Iran in 1993. The Institute would like to thank the Lindner family for their generous support. This prize is run with the support of DARCH – the NSW Emerging Architect and Graduate Network (EmAGN)

Hurry, entries close Friday 27 May. For more information go to the DARCH website.
