Australia Day Honours reward Institute Fellows

The Australian Institute of Architects congratulates Fellows John Gollings and Donald Goldsworthy on their receipt of Australia Day Honours.

Mr Gollings was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia for ‘significant service to photography through documentation of iconic architectural landmarks in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region’.

John Gollings was made an Honorary Fellow of the Institute in 2004 and has received numerous Institute accolades including the 2013 William J Mitchell International Committee Prize, the 1990 and 1998 President’s Award and the 2008 Victorian President’s Prize.

In 2010, Gollings was Co-Creative Director of the Australian Pavilion of the Venice Architecture Biennale. Together with Ivan Rijavek he created the exhibition Now and When, which represented new paradigms for the city of the future: in 3D, juxtaposed with the current condition of Australian cities photographed from a helicopter. This exhibition attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors as it travelled around many major cities of Asia.

Mr Goldsworthy was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia ‘for service to architecture and urban design’.

A Fellow of the Victorian Chapter since 2010, Donald Goldsworthy established his own practice in 1995 providing consultant services across architecture, strategic planning, asset management, urban design and project procurement.

Throughout his career he has worked with the City of Greater Bendigo, the Department of Planning and Development for the Victorian State Government, and the Rehabilitation and Feasibility Branch for the Ministry of Housing.
