Jury Decided | People’s Choice

The Building.

The grand prize of the night, The Building is awarded to a project that advances architecture and its capacity to respond to place-specific currents.

The Design Studio.

Whether architect, designer or modern hybrid, this award honours the studio that thinks forward, creates voraciously and changes perceptions.

The Work Space.

The workplace is social and cultural, as much as it is functional. This award honours a workspace design that meets the demands of work and the needs of people.

The Living Space

The Social Space.

Some of the most impressive spaces are those where people interact and play. We honour a space that tells a relevant story, captures the imagination, and brings people together.

The Object.

Not all objects are created equal. We look at how they function, what they signify, and how they fit with the human body. We award the region’s finest in modern industrial design.

Launch Pad.

The Launch Pad program provides our design community with a vital avenue to nurture and celebrate original, authentic and innovative emerging design, thus supporting and cultivating the careers of those product designers involved.
