SuperStudio

Superstudio 2019 - Community

Superstudio is SONA’s annual flagship competition.   It is all about ideas, conceptual approach and creative thinking. Think of it as a creative licence to do all the things that wouldn’t be allowed in a design studio.

In 2019 Superstudio will run simultaneously on Sat 3 Aug and Sun 4 Aug by each hosting state university.  It is a two-day design competition held across the country where students participate in a team of three to respond to a brief that is given at the beginning of the competition with the final design being presented to a jury made up of architects from around the state, industry professionals and university academics.

The competition will run across the country with students responding to a brief on the 2019 SONA theme of “Community”. 

Teams of three will be formed with the aim to win in their state, with each state winning team having the opportunity to go through to the national shortlist.  The national winning team will receive a cash prize of $3000.

We are proud to introduce our 2019 Creative Directors who are actively working on a design brief:

Parisa Izadpanahi, Curtin University, Architecture Program Leader
Francesco Mancini, Curtin University, Deputy Head of School
Reinette Roux, WA EmAGN Co-Chair

Prizes:

* Charles Darwin University exempt from national prize
