Australian Institute Of Architects Awards

As a member of the Sustainability Jury for the 2013 Victorian Architecture Awards, Chris Barnett has recently been hearing presentations and visiting a range of inspiring buildings.

This jury role follows on from time Chris has spent on the AIA National Sustainability Committee, and convening the Victorian Sustainable Architects Forum.

The 2013 Victorian Architecture Award winners will be announced tomorrow (Friday) night. Winning projects will hopefully be covered in the media over the weekend. Often covered in a ‘view bite’ with little design industry context, we wonder what much of the Australian public makes of some of the more controversial and expensive buildings that win awards?
