Ken Maher of HASSELL has been awarded Australia’s top national architecture prize, the Australian Institute of Architects 2009 Gold Medal for Architecture. Described as “shaping Sydney’s physical and culture landscape”, with creating some of the city’s most “iconic public spaces”, and “ensuring the better design of all new residential buildings over three storeys”, Ken Maher has been shaping Australian architecture over the past 38 years. As importantly, Maher is also known as an advocate for architectural engagement and collaboration.

In Sydney alone, his projects include icons such as the restoration of Luna Park at North Sydney, the North Sydney Olympic Pool, Olympic Park Railway Station at Homebush, National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) buildings, and the new Epping Chatswood Rail Line.

    Hello Elise,

    Unfortunately, we do not have a copy of the award. We’re a media house and the article was published as a news report when it happened.
