2013 New Zealand Architecture Awards winners

May 28, 2013

Nineteen projects were acknowledged at the 2013 New Zealand Architecture Awards on Friday.

A total of 19 projects were recognised across 21 awards at this year’s New Zealand Architecture Awards (NZAA), the official program of the New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA).

As well as the project awards, the NZIA’s Gold Medal for career achievement was awarded to Auckland architect Pip Cheshire.

The New Zealand Architecture Medal, awarded to the most outstanding of the NZAA winners, was presented to the Imperial Buildings – a group of heritage buildings on Auckland’s Queen Street, which have been restored and revived by Fearon Hay Architects.

Awards jury convenor and Auckland architect, Andrew Barclay, said that the Imperial Buildings project was a fitting overall winner in a year in which the adaptive re-use of older buildings was a strong theme in the Awards.

“The conversion of older buildings to new purposes may be a symptom of current economic circumstances, but it also signals a greater awareness of the worth of existing buildings, and of the possibilities they offer to imaginative clients and architects,” Barclay continued.

The jury comprised Barclay (Warren and Mahoney Architects), Jane Aimer (Scarlet Architects), Pete Bossley (Bossley Architects), and Rachel Neeson (Neeson Murcutt Architects).
