The 2011 AAA Caviler Bremworth Unbuilt Architecture Awards held last week was our best awards yet.
This year we received a phenomenal 159 entries. 93 in the always popular Student Category, and 66 entries split evenly between the Open Conceptual category and the new Work in Progress Category.
The awards evening was preceded with a delightful lecture by guest international judge Kerry Hill. Kerry presented his impressive collection of works – highly refined arrangements of ‘quiet’ spaces echoing modern ideologies which are beautifully brought together in the elegant and contextually fitting composition of light weight, massive and screening materials.
Carol Hirschfeld along with judges Kerry Hill, Andrew Patterson and Nat Cheshire announced and presented the awards to their recipients in each category. Unexpectantly Kerry offered a job to one of the winners, a generous offer that has made this event stand out from those before.
An exhibition of the work at AUT’s St Paul st gallery was open on Friday and over weekend. It was well received by its professional, student and public viewers.
The AAA would like to acknowledge Desiree and Cavalier Bremworth for their 20 years of support. This year Cavalier Bremworth raised the bar to a new high with a competition website, a new category, an increased prize pool, and a fantastic celebratory awards evening. This years success very much came down to the support of Cavalier Bremworth.
