Landscape Win With Brick and Concrete Design

Think Brick Awards (14/12/2015)

Think Brick Australia have announced the winner for its Urban Design Landscape Award at the Gala Awards Dinner held in Sydney’s Intercontinental Hotel.

Wilson Architects and Donovan Hill Architects won submitting their “Translational Research Institute” project.

The building at Brisbane’s Princess Alexandra Hospital significantly showcases bricks in both its interior and exterior spaces.

Judges respected the blurred lines between landscape, building and interior and the use of brick in the facility.

“Brick gives expression to this intriguing characteristic and this can be seen on approach, up close and in the great outdoor room that brings the community of researchers together.”

The winning team received a trophy, certificate and the $5000 cash prize at the August event.

This year’s Landscape Award category has evolved to include concrete masonry used in landscape or outdoor urban design in line with Think Brick’s association with Concrete Masonry Association of Australia (CMAA).

The landscape category includes non-building projects that have enhanced the quality of the built environment or public domain incorporating clay brick or pavers.

There were a record number of entries in this year’s Think Brick Awards with over 150 entries and it is expected that 2014 will achieve an even more overwhelming response.

In 2014, the Awards will increase prize money for each category and will introduce the Grand Prix Prize for the overall winner of the 5 categories.
