Sydney’s Prince Alfred Pool + Park Upgrade – ‘a rare synthesis of art and landscape, urban design and architecture’ – has won both the Sulman Medal for Public Architecture and the Lloyd Rees Award for Urban Design at this year’s Australian Institute of Architects’ NSW Architecture Awards.
Presented at the historic Jones Bay Wharf on Thursday 26 June, a total of forty-two awards, nine prizes and eighteen commendations were given to recognise the very best in NSW architecture (click link below for full winners list).
Thank you to all who attended. It was one of the most successful held so far. Hosted by Joe Agius and emceed by ABC presenter Fenella Kernebone, 500 people attended and enjoyed a seamless and fast paced award presentation. The speeches by Joe Agius, VIP guests Pru Goward and Clover Moore, overall jury chair Tony Caro as well as the prize recipients were well considered; sharing a consistent message of the importance of good planning and that bigger and better should be considered over bigger and bigger. The mood was buoyant and generous.
