The Australian Institute of Architects is the peak body for the architectural profession in Australia, working to improve our built environment by promoting quality, responsible and sustainable design.
Honouring excellence in the design and construction industry, the WA Chapter of the Institute presents the annual Architecture Awards to showcase the state’s architectural achievements and the contribution architects make to the quality of the built environment.
Each year, entries range from large scale public developments, heritage and educational architecture through to unique residential projects. Winners of Named and Architecture Awards progress to the National Architecture Awards later in the year, where they are judged against the very best architectural works in the country.
With over 100 entries, the 2019 Awards program features a myriad of unique projects across multiple categories including landmark developments such as Yagan Square and the Perth Children’s Hospital.
Ranging from inner-city meeting places and boutique hotels, to significant regional heritage restorations and a wide selection of housing projects, the entries demonstrate the integral role architecture plays in our everyday lives.
With such a diverse group of entries showcased in the Awards each year, the challenges the client faces are creating media interest around not only the Institute as a peak body, but also, the Awards program and in turn the architects and their respective projects.
Detail have been engaged by the Australian Institute of Architects to strategically manage the publicity of the Awards program since 2011, successfully delivering meaningful and interesting coverage year on year.
