Entrants ‘do more with less’

The 2024 Tasmanian Architecture Award jury chair, 1+2 Architecture director Fred Ward said the projects responded to the demand of Tasmania’s economic context and did “more with less”. 

“Our architects have been challenged and are pushing both themselves and their clients to achieve greater outcomes through simpler, more cost-effective and less resource-intensive means,” Ward said.

“The requirement for an inventive approach, utilising refined design skills, has proven to be essential and demonstrates the value proposition of good design.”

The award recipients in each category will be announced at an awards presentation evening on 29 June, in Hobart.  

Voting for the People’s Choice is currently open and available either at the exhibition or on the awards website.
