Reinvigorating with sustainability in mind and the importance of public spaces
Chair of the NSW Architecture juries, Peter Mould, shared some headline insights of the 2021 awards. “Many of the awarded projects are existing buildings that have been adapted for new uses or had existing uses reinvigorated. This sustainably captures all the embodied energy and craft from the past as well as retaining their important contribution to local urban character.
“We’ve also seen many projects having multiple authors, with architects working in collaboration to deliver large and complex projects.”
Peter concluded with a valuable architectural lesson learned from Covid-19. “The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the importance of public spaces and venues, so it’s good to see so many public projects awarded this year.”
