The Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) has revealed the 59 projects in contention for awards at this year’s National Architecture Awards, taking place in Perth this November.

This is the first time in the National Awards’ history that the AIA has elected to reveal the shortlist before awards night. A total of 59 projects have been selected from among the 140 regional winners by the jury – which this year comprises Brian Zulaikha, Kerry Hill, Richard Johnson, Amy Muir and Juliana Engberg.

This year also marks the first time in the awards’ 31-year history that they will be held in Perth. The awards night will take place at Midland Railway Workshops, a group of early 20th century industrial buildings, on Thursday 1 November.
