_Architectural Review Australia_ is pleased to announce the third in its series of architectural competitions entitled Proposition.
The national architecture ideas competition seeks to identify innovative development concepts for a chosen site. The first in the series, Proposition 3047, asked entrants to design a town centre for Broadmeadows in Victoria. The second, Proposition 6707, challenged architects to design an eco-resort at Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia.
This years competition is called Proposition 2065. The brief is to design a mixed-use development for a site in St Leonards, Sydney, immediately adjacent to the train station and major road intersection.
Proposition competitions are two stage, open to all architects and anonymous, in order to allow an even playing field across entrants. The jury composition, associated workshops and selection criteria reflect a competition that attempts to balance the design potential of a site and the economic realities of commercial development.
A shortlist is drawn up from the full list of entries, with selected practices proceeding to the second stage, to develop their ideas further. All shortlisted teams receive a $10,000 fee plus the opportunity to win the overall prize of $20,000. The competition is published over 3 issues of AR up until October 2010.
The full website and downloadable brief, drawings and associated documents will be launched on 31 March, which is also the launch date for Stage One.
