The ArchitectureAU Award for Social Impact returns in 2024, with the program honouring projects that promote the common good and have made valuable contributions to society.
The 2024 jury comprises David Fisher of Housing Choices Australia, Maryam Gusheh of Monash University, Kieran Wong of the Fulcrum Agency, Linda Cheng, of Architecture Media and Greens MP Elizabeth Watson-Brown. The jury convener will be Rory Hyde of the Melbourne School of Design, University of Melbourne.
“This program awards practice that is grounded in people’s needs, highlights design moves that make measurable positive and beneficial impacts on real people’s lives, and showcases architecture’s capacity to address critically important challenges,” said Linda Cheng, editor of ArchitectureAU and 2024 jury chair.
The Fulcrum Agency and Kaunitz Yeung Architecture were joint recipients of the inaugural award in 2023, the Groote Archipelago Housing Programme and Puntukurnu AMS Healthcare Hub respectively.
