The shortlist that comprises The Building category this year are a disparate group of outstanding architectural projects. From civic and institutional projects through to residences, a Viewing Shelter and even a Surf Life Saving Club, the projects speak for themselves when it comes to excellent form, function, sustainability and aesthetics.
As the most notable buildings located in the Indo-Pacific, the shortlisted projects in The Building category are sympathetic to place, reflect the culture of the country and the aspirations of the client. While great architecture and design is of course evident, it is sustainability on myriad levels that unifies these projects.
As supporter of The Building, Kaolin exemplifies the ideals of this category with sustainability key to its business and product offerings. Providing tiles that are sustainable, aesthetically pleasing and best practice in design, Kaolin is ensuring that the future is in safe hands. As are all 12 of the practitioners within the shortlist.
