Boral Design Award 2010 – entries close 30 September
The window of opportunity for architects, building designers and architectural students is closing as Boral’s 5th annual Design Award nears its submission deadline of 30 September.
Featuring a generous cash prize pool totalling $34,000, the 2010 Boral Design Award is an opportunity to design innovative concepts in realistic residential design, with a brief incorporating a 125m² family home and its landscape.
This year, entrants are asked to respond to the challenge of Australia’s changing housing needs and reduced land sizes and to consider adaptability, sustainability and affordability.
In 2010, the jury of industry representatives comprises Tone Wheeler from Environa Studio in Sydney, Paul Owen from Owen and Vokes in Brisbane, Nick Drougas from Metricon in Melbourne, Glenn Simpkin from Boral and jury chair Andrew Mackenzie, editor-in-chief of Architectural Review Australia magazine.
For their design concepts, entrants are asked to specify from a range of selected Boral products including timber, bricks, pavers, decorative concrete, roof tiles, windows and bifold doors.
First prize is $20,000 in the professional category and second prize is $10,000. In the student category, first prize is $4,000.
Boral Design Award entrants must submit a written component and digital imagery of up to five physical models or 3D renders of their concept. The entry pack, in addition to resources, can be downloaded at www.designaward.boral.com.au.
