Win a Venice Biennale trip with the next generation ZINCALUME®
Fitting neatly with the Australian Institute of Architect's theme of 'material', principal sponsor BlueScope Steel will be giving away samples of next generation ZINCALUME® steel and some exciting prizes at the National Architecture Conference, held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from May 30 to June 1.
The major prize is a trip to the Venice Biennale (including flights for two adults, accommodation, tickets to the Biennale and spending money), valued at approximately $10,000.
The conference aims to explore the political, environmental and technological concerns surrounding architects' use of material in their work, and has secured the attendance of 14 high-profile presenters from around the world.
Among them will be Aste Architecture founder Kathrin Aste, from Austria. Aste is known for her adventurous creations requiring absolute precision when it comes to material use; a good example being her use of steel in the mountain peak platform 'Top of Tyrol'.
From Australia, Tonkin Zulaikha Greer director Tim Greer will be sharing his materials expertise honed through work on the Contemporary Performing Arts Centre, the Scots Church redevelopment and the Glasshouse Arts Conference and Entertainment Centre.
The samples of next generation ZINCALUME® steel will be available from BlueScope's installation, along with information on the newly-revised material's improved properties and performance.
In addition, the three samples of new generation ZINCALUME® steel that each delegate will receive when participating in the promotion will give them the chance to win a range of prizes.
Over three-and-a-half thousand next generation ZINCALUME® steel samples are to be given away, and 256 will have a prize sticker attached.
Second prize is one of five 16GB iPads, each valued at $679.
Third prize is one of 125 tickets to the BlueScope Steel Business Lounge located at the conference, each valued at $135.
Fourth prize is one of 125 Staedtler architects' mechanical pencils, each valued at $30.
