Lot with a Little Award
Totem Park, Citipower, Powercor, Projects of Imagination

Totem Park was an exhibition at the Energy 21 Conference, an annual energy industry event that addresses issues such as climate change, networks, and energy supplier competencies. The Projects of Imagination design team was commissioned by Citipower and Powercor, two of Australia’s primary electricity distributors (and major conference sponsors), to design an exhibit presenting three core business sectors (smart meters, customer service, and network services) within a 6m-by-6m display area.

ANZ Centre

Merit Award
ANZ Centre, ANZ, Fabio Ongarato Design, HASSELL, Lend Lease Design

ANZ bank, renowned for its strong work culture, has a new head office in Melbourne— home to more than 6,500 staff and now the largest single-tenanted commercial office building in Australia.

Inspired by the riverside setting and the maritime character intrinsic to Docklands, the fluid forms and powerful internal spaces contribute to a commanding presence. The design evolved around the concept of an urban campus, focused on a central common, with a hierarchy of shared spaces, an openness fostering interaction, and a rich variety of settings providing scale and complexity.

Battery Point Sculpture Trail

Merit Award
Battery Point Sculpture Trail, Hobart City Council, Futago in collaboration with Judith Abell and Chris Viney

Battery Point Sculpture Trail is a permanent installation of nine individually designed and fabricated sculptures along a walking route through an historic waterfront suburb of Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania, Australia's island state. The trail was conceived as a way to increase visitor movement along the foreshore, encourage exploration of the roads and paths, and raise awareness of the area’s history while giving equal balance to public art and interpretation.

Leeds Street Tree Gates

Merit Award
Leeds Street Tree Gates, Maribyrnong City Council, Melbourne, HeineJones Water

In 2010, Maribyrnong City Council approached HeineJones to design an interpretive solution to describe the function and intent of a new “rain garden” installed as part of a streetscape redevelopment in the city of Footscray. The project included the planting of 22 trees utilizing principles of Water Sensitive Urban Design. Collectively the trees form a rain garden, a system that uses rainfall to wash the streets, water trees, and filter and cleanse the water before it is fed into the local river.

Sydney Water: By The Sweat Of Their Brows

Merit Award
Sydney Water: By The Sweat Of Their Brows, Sydney Water, BrandCulture Communications

Potts Hill reservoir has supplied Sydney with its drinking water for well over 100 years, so it is of particular importance to the heritage of this public brand. The site contains the original screening chamber used to remove debris out of the upper canal. The first reservoir was built when the needs of Sydney’s population surpassed the capacity of the canal, and was a significant engineering feat at the time.
