The Western Australian Architecture Awards recognises local architects for their unique designs and projects.
The highest accolade of their awards night at Crown Tower Ballrooms on 23rd June, is the George Temple Poole award.
The building was selected for its significant contribution to the advancement of educational architecture in WA.
The Australian Institute of Architectures jury said Hassell embodied architecture that serves the community, enriching the lives of students, teachers, and staff who use the new buildings.
Also featured among this year’s award winners is the East Pilbara Arts Centre by Officer Woods Architects, Elizabeth Quay by ARM with TCL and UWA’s Reid Library by Cameron Chisholm Nicol and recently renovated by Schin Architects.
All award winners are now progressing to the national awards ceremony, to be judged against the best architectural works in the country.
Suzanne Hunt, President of the Australian Institute of Architecture said most people are unaware of the big role architects play in the building process.
“The exhibition is something we’re really pushing to the public to be involved in. It’s a fantastic opportunity to take a look into what architects actually do,” she said.
A public exhibition displaying all entrants’ work is open for viewing in Allendale Square Lobby, 77 St George’s Terrace Perth, running 9am to 5pm until the 30th of June.
