2011 AA Prize for Unbuilt Work awarded

03 February 2012

The 2011 AA Prize for Unbuilt Work was announced to a packed audience last night at the South Yarra house Robin Boyd designed for his family in 1958.

This is the second year SHAPE has partnered with Architecture Australia to promote debate about architecture and architectural ideas by acknowledging excellence in unbuilt projects.
 
This year's AA Prize for Unbuilt Work was awarded to Melbourne student Ton Vu. This scheme explores the topic of informal urbanism, a pressing matter given that one-sixth of the world's population currently lives in informal settlements, with this figure growing.
 
Timothy Moore, editor of Architecture Australia, congratulated Ton on receiving the award and said he had demonstrated what architecture can do to empower the underdog, from the scale of the city to the street corner.
 
Other recognized entrants were Times Two Architects, which received an Honourable Mention; and Palace (Valle Medina and Ben Reynolds), Daniel Spence and Lucy Warnock who received Special Mentions.
