|Sydney - 23 July 2001
The Royal Australian Institute of Architects (RAIA) NSW Chapter will announce the winners of their annual Architecture Awards at 6pm Tuesday 24 July in Scientia, at the University of New South Wales.
Amongst the awards to be announced is the prestigious Sulman award that was first given in 1932.
135 nominations have been judged by the six person jury.
According to the NSW President of the RAIA, Mr Richard Francis-Jones, the architecture awards play an important role in demonstrating to the community the possibilities inherent in every project.
`They show what can be achieved in house and housing design, public and commercial development, urban design, heritage and environmental sustainability,'
`They may also demonstrate the intangible and immeasurable dimensions that can inspire us all. Architecture that may become the heritage of the future, integral elements of our culture that belong to the entire community,' said Mr Francis-Jones. ENDS
