NGV Contemporary Competition – An exciting opportunity for Australian Architects to deliver world-leading architecture

NGV Contemporary Competition Update

Registration for the NGV Contemporary Design Competition is now open for Australian Architects, Architectural Companies and Architectural Partnerships. Registration is a prerequisite to participating in the competition. The registration period closes at 2pm AEDT on Thursday 4 March 2021.

“The Institute applauds both the Victorian State Government and the NGV for their shared vision in supporting the Australian design community in the announcement of the NGV Contemporary building.

This dedicated investment into the Australian economy is most welcomed and its Australian and Victorian focused stimulus we believe is entirely appropriate.

From the perspective of the Australian Institute of Architects we believe that this competition is a welcome opportunity to celebrate the abundance of local talent we have in this country. We believe the targeted and transparent support of Australian architecture in this design competition provides a unique opportunity to demonstrate the capacity of the local profession to produce world-class architecture.

It is refreshing to have a process that reimagines conventional competition norms, responding directly to our times.”
