SuperStudio 2014


SONA Congratulates the National Winning Team of SuperStudio 2014!

Congratulations to the winning team from South Australia, and to those who come a close second from Queensland and third from Western Australia! The National Jury have also commended projects with teams from New South Wales and Victoria. Thank you to all who participated in SuperStudio 2014, we look forward to seeing you next year!

First Place

  • Yasmin Munro, Year 2, University of South Australia
  • Claebon Sandell, Year 2, University of South Australia
  • Ricky Sallemi,Year 2, University of South Australia

Check out team SA 05’s proposal here.

The National Jury commented:

  • A provocative idea that was spatially, materially and experientially rich and engaging and for this reason stood out from the other entries. The scheme also thoughtfully addressed the brief in terms of its site specificity, temporal nature, and engagement with occupants.
  • A very clever, engaging concept that becomes impossible to ignore. The judges in general weren’t sure if you intended this intervention as a working model in a university or as an art piece in a gallery, either way we loved it, well done.

Yasmin, Claebon and Ricky will receive return tickets to Venice and entry to the Venice Bienalle courtesy of SuperStudio National Sponsor Bondor!

Second Place

  • Kyle Jonsson, Year 1, Bond University
  • Francois Sneeden, Year 1, Bond University
  • Thomas Puc, Year 1, Bond University

Check out team QLD 13’s proposal here and below for the sound file!


The National Jury commented:

  • A very simple and elegant idea that used minimal means to make a powerful spatial and material gesture. The jury was impressed with the simplicity and legibility of the idea, although it was felt that the standard of graphic communication could have been higher.
  • You’ve chosen a theme close to every Australians heart & presented an extremely creative idea that could actually be achieved in real life………… I really liked that aspect. Your presentation addressed the “event based”, “site specific”, “construct/destructibility” requirements of the brief really well….. fantastic effort.

SONA was very impressed with this team of 1st years from Bond University! Kyle, Francois and Thomas highlight the fact that students in earlier years of their education should not be put of entering competitions such as SuperStudio for fear of being beaten by those with  more experience, great ideas happen everywhere!

Third Place

  • Kyra Lomas, Year 5, University of Western Australia
  • Lan Nguyen, Year 5, University of Western Australia
  • Emily Sullivan, Year 5, University of Western Australia

Check out team WA09’s proposal here.

The National Jury commented:

  • A highly detailed proposal that engaged directly and imaginatively with the issues of an existing site – a well-considered and well communicated idea. Although each scenario of occupying the public space was well considered, the jury felt that the scheme may have been stronger if it was refined down to a single key idea that was clearly communicated, rather than multiple scenarios.
  • An emotive topic for any of the public who visit Perth CBD. Your submission combines a level of permanent infrastructure change (water & light) with the portability of the event based structures……….. I hope Perth City Council is listening.


  • Emily Basile, Year 5, University of Melbourne
  • Jeanne Dantas do Sousa, Year 2, Deakin University
  • Ana Cecilia Moreira Marques, Year 3, Deakin University

The National Jury commented:

  • A well communicated and engaging proposal that presented a compelling idea for using public space.

SONA was super impressed to see this team consisting of students from various year levels and universities do so well. This interaction and networking between students of various year levels and unis is one of the aims of SuperStudio.

Check out team VIC 09’s proposal here.


  • Demas Rusli, Year 5, University of New South Wales
  • Jason Goh, Year 5, University of New South Wales
  • Plini Roessler-Holgate, Year 5, University of New South Wales

The National Jury commented:

  • The jury was impressed with the subtlety and minimal means used by this scheme to rethink the way people engage with public space.

Check out team NSW 14’s proposal here.

The National Jury included SuperStudio Creative Directors Zuzana Kovar and Nicholas Skepper, SONA Vice President – Competitions Morgan Kennedy and National Sponsor Bondor Representative Glen Roberts.

Huge thanks to the SuperStudio National Sponsor BONDOR.

As a proud supporting partner of the Australian Institute of Architects, Bondor was delighted to take part in SuperStudio 2014 – a fantastic 24 hour design competition for students of architecture or similar disciplines.

At SuperStudio sessions around the country, Bondor representatives were pleased to see so many students involved in an Institute initiative that supports the creative process, innovation and design.

Bondor representatives in each state met some truly inspiring students, witnessed their creativity firsthand, and were also able to inform them of Bondor’s extensive product offering, recent design innovations and impressive body of work.

Institute events such Superstudio allow Bondor to better understand what is important to architects and how we as a building products business can improve our relationship with the architects of today and tomorrow.

Bondor congratulates the winners of this year’s SuperStudio and looks forward to supporting similar events and programs for Institute student members in the near future.
