Brisbane: Proposition 2065 briefing

March 30, 2010

The Brisbane briefing for AR’s architectural ideas competition, Proposition 2065.

Architectural Review Australia has launched the third in its series of architectural ideas competitions entitled Proposition. The national architecture ideas competition seeks to identify innovative development concepts for a chosen site.

Proposition 2065 takes its name from the postcode for the site’s location in Sydney’s St Leonards. The brief is to design a mixed-use development for the site, which is 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.

*You are invited to a briefing on the competition in Brisbane on 16 April. If you are unable to attend this or either of the events taking place in Sydney and Melbourne, the briefing will be filmed and available online at www.australiandesignreview.com from 2 April.*

*Where* Brisbane, The Loading Dock, 97-105 Margaret St
*When* Friday 16 April 5.30-6.30pm

*Proposition 2065 is sponsored by Willoughby City Council, Altomonte Holdings, Graphisoft and Polyflor.*
