The Australian Institute of Architects online architecture gallery 'architecture.com.au projects' is the largest online databases of architecture in Australia.
The site is based around the prestigous Australian Institute of Architects National Architecture Awards, which have been running since 1981. The gallery currently contains just approximately 2,000 projects that have been entered in the awards program from 1981 onwards.
These consist of:
*Only Chapter Award Winners eligible for judging at the national level are included
- National Award Winners from 1981 to present
- Chapter (state) Award Winners from 1996* to present
- All entrants from 1999 to present
To make the site user-friendly, projects displayed have been arranged in four major categories: Residential, Public Buildings, Commercial and Urban Design. These categories (which are also divided into sub-categories) are based around the project type not the awards category a project was entered into. For this reason, a church that may have been entered into a Conservation Award category will be found in Public Buildings/Religious.
The gallery also contains links to the Institute's popular 'Find an architect' service.
