The Houses Awards shortlist is out, and there is a HUGE mix of work in the running. The categories themselves are numerous, let alone the range of individual works.
Each year The Australian Interior Design Awards “recognise and celebrate interior design excellence via a credible, industry-based program, which is backed by the Design Institute of Australia, the professional body representing Australian designers”. The awards are open to any design professional within Australia and can include projects from all over the world.
This Thursday I will be doing a brief talk at The Architecture Foundation’s Annual Sponsor Event. The Architecture Foundation run the Parker Fellowship (previously the Eric Parker Travelling Scholarship, as it was known when I received the prize) and year after year go to the huge and wonderful effort of funding a travelling scholarship for one Newcastle University architecture student who shows great potential, interest and dedication. This award is about seeing, thinking and drawing, and literally changes lives. It is the most beautiful initiative, created in memory of Eric Parker, once a great influence in the Architecture Faculty of Newcastle University.
This April 1st at the Hotel Delany in Cooks Hill, Newcastle I will be doing a design talk to the public, [re]presenting my Final Year project. I will be followed by a bound to be revealing talk by EJE of Newcastle, who collaborated with Lyons Architects to design the winning entry for the proposed Newcastle City University campus. It should be a great night, so feel free to come along!
