Nominations for the Enduring Architecture Award

Nominations are open to members, non-members and non-architects for the Enduring Architecture Award. Buildings of at least 25 years of age may be considered for this Award.

Buildings nominated need not be previous award winners but must be buildings of outstanding merit that, considered in a contemporary context, remain important as high quality works of architecture. Projects should be assessed in terms of national significance, technical advancement, innovation for its time, symbolic significance and/or creative leadership.

Although not essential, any additional information you can supply upon making this recommendation will greatly assist the SA Chapter Honours Committee e.g. project name, practice name, address, relevant contacts, drawings and photographs.
