Three projects have been recognised in four categories at the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) NSW Chapter. The awards were announced at a gala dinner on Saturday 1st July at Luna Park in Sydney. In total, the jury bestowed 66 awards and commendations.
Reflecting Woods Bagot’s cross-sector expertise, commendations were received for the following projects:
- Urban Design - Wynyard Walk
- Public Architecture - Wynyard Walk
- Educational Architecture - The University of Sydney Business School
- Small Project Architecture - Campos Barangaroo
Woods Bagot Director Domenic Alvaro said the awards were a testament to Woods Bagot’s diverse portfolio of design excellence.
“Our success across a number of scales and building typologies shows the impact of our work in shaping the city. Focused on the experience of people and place making, Woods Bagot is committed to working alongside Australia’s leading property developers and making a significant contribution to the City of Sydney.”
Alvaro added, "To be commended in both the Public and Urban Design categories for Wynyard Walk reflects our influence on the public domain and the future of civic infrastructure in our global city. Connecting one of Sydney’s busiest transport interchanges to Barangaroo, Wynyard Walk has created a unified identity and civic presence while enhancing the user experience for up to 20,000 commuters per hour, delivering a socially sustainable piece of infrastructure to Sydney’s CBD."
NSW Chapter President Andrew Nimmo said, “…while we need to have bigger cities to accommodate population growth, the challenge is to make better cities with increased open space and amenity and more reliable public transport and infrastructure. Many of the entries contribute to addressing these issues through inventive design solutions.”
