NSW Country Division Architecture Awards

The NSW Country Division Architecture Awards celebrate the work of architects working in regional NSW. Since its inception in 1960, the NSW Country Division has provided continuous representation and service to NSW regional architects of the Australian Institute of Architects outside the metropolitan areas of Sydney and Newcastle. The annual Awards program has grown in prestige over many years, recognised as a forum to showcase regional architecture at its best. The program not only celebrates the high level of design excellence in country NSW, but also celebrates the achievements of our Country Division members practicing architecture, often in remote regional locations.

Winners of the 2018 NSW Country Division Architecture Awards were announced Thursday 4 October 2018.
