Entries open for the 2014 Dulux Study Tour

Dulux invites architecture professionals to apply for five exclusive places available on the 2014 Dulux Study Tour – a coveted program that inspires and fosters Australia’s next generation of emerging architectural talent.

Now in its seventh year, the 2014 Dulux Study Tour is a 10 day international tour, where the group will visit leading global architecture and design firms in some of the most architecturally-rich destinations.

Dulux General Manager – Trade Division, Phil White, said the Dulux Study Tour has a strong focus on supporting the ‘next generation’ of talent in the architecture and design industry.

“The Dulux Study Tour is an intense 10 day trip where recipients are immersed in architecture, visiting iconic buildings and firms, and spending important one-on-one time with notable heavyweights in the industry. They will eat, live and breathe architecture from day one of the Tour and will be guided by representatives from both the Australian Institute of Architects and Dulux,” White said.

All graduates of architecture, up to 10 years from graduation, from the tier-two or five-year Bachelor of Architecture degrees are eligible to enter the 2014 Dulux Study Tour.

Entry into the 2014 Dulux Study Tour is a two stage process. Stage one requires entrants to answer four questions that will determine a shortlist, which is selected by a panel of highly regarded professionals in the industry.

Shortlisted entrants will be notified to enter stage two, where a more detailed entry covering recent work needs to be submitted, with a judging panel to select the five Dulux Study Tour recipients.

2013 Dulux Study Tour recipient, Mel Bright, said the Dulux Study Tour has given her a new perspective on her own practice of architecture.

“The Dulux Study tour accelerated my growing sense of the possibilities for future directions in architecture. I’m sure this will resonate with me for many years,” said Mel.

Stage one entries close Thursday 19 September, 2013 and the five successful recipients of the 2014 Dulux Study Tour will be announced at the Australian Achievement in Architecture Awards in March 2014.

The Dulux Study Tour is a collaborative initiative between Dulux, the Australian Institute of Architects and EmAGN.
