The three winning proposals for the 2010 Inaugural Open Agenda competition were announced this week.
The architecture drawing project by Byron Kinnaird and Barnaby Bennett (Victoria University Wellington, New Zealand graduates)
(in)human habitat by James Gardiner (UTS/RMIT graduate)
City Breeder by David Pigram and Iain Maxwell (University of Canberra/AA/GSAPP graduates)
An honourable mention was given to the Linear Monument: a search for urban futures proposal by Ben Milbourne and Edmund Carter (University of Sydney/RMIT graduates)
The three winning proposals will each receive $2000 from the University of Technology, School of Architecture to develop their proposals into an exhibition, publication and lecture format. The exhibition will be created at Customs House in Sydney, and will open in mid October this year as part of Architecture week.
“The range and quality of the proposals we received has been exceptional. The winning entries explore issues from the urban to ecological infrastructures to modes of architectural drawing. Together, they sketch a critical response to dominant issues in architecture and the built environment for the coming years.” said Anthony Burke, the Competition Chair and Head of School of Architecture at UTS.
More information on the winning proposals and dates for the Open Agenda Exhibition will be available soon at the Open Agenda website.
