Australia Recognises the Builders of our Environment
The 10 winners of Australia’s Year of the Built Environment 2004 (YBE 2004) National Awards were announced by the Governor of NSW during a ceremony and reception held at the Sydney Opera House this evening.
The winners were 10 outstanding examples of people, places, and organizations that have significantly shaped the urban environments in which we live.
David Parken, Chair of the YBE 2004 National Steering Committee and Jury Chair, said the winners were chosen from over 400 nominations and had improved the quality of life enjoyed by Australians.
“By improving our urban environment and living conditions, and preserving our heritage the award winners have helped create fun, healthy, and sustainable places for Australians to live, work and play in,” he said.
“The YBE 2004 National Award winners reflect the diversity of our great nation, our adaptability to our different needs and environments, and our ability to integrate our urban and natural environments.
“They epitomise the best of Australian innovation, vision, and commitment to environmental sustainability.”
