It features 89 projects across 14 categories celebrating public, residential, heritage and regional architecture.

Victorian Chapter President Amy Muir says that building sustainable communities is important for the state’s long-term panning needs.

“At a time where we are acutely aware of the issues that our industry is facing due to increased procurement and economic pressures, the awards provide an opportunity to acknowledge the significant efforts made by architects, clients, consultants and contractors to provide quality built outcomes,” said Muir.

Muir said that the number of heritage projects that made the shortlist doubled over the past year.

“Most importantly, sustainability in design needs to be understood through the lens of longevity, going beyond short-term gains and visions. This is a prevailing message highlighted in our shortlisted projects this year.

“All good buildings require a considered and collaborative design process. It is these projects that provide the best outcomes for delivering permanent benefits to communities at large.”

Public architecture also saw a rise in recognition – 11 projects listed this year compared to the prior year’s four.

“The design outcomes achieved via the shortlisted public architecture projects define the important role that the public realm plays in providing exemplar-built outcomes that support our growing communities and provide a legacy for future generations,” adds Muir.

“With population density rising across our cities, public space becomes an incredibly valuable commodity – not only from an economic perspective, but more importantly for the wellbeing of our communities.”

The winners of the 2019 Victorian Architecture Awards will be announced at the official awards dinner on 28 June.

Winners of each category will then be eligible for the National Architecture Awards program.
