2012 New Zealand Architecture Awards


Under Pohutukawa by Herbst Architects Ltd

Twenty projects have been recognized in the 2012 New Zealand Architecture Awards. Proving that design quality is not governed by the size of buildings or type of work, winners in the country’s leading architectural awards program ranged from the Auckland Art Gallery to a Napier artist’s studio, from a chapel in an inner-city church to a café on the side of a mountain, and from an airport hotel to a lakeside school. The jury will select one project from among the New Zealand Architecture Award winners to receive the 2012 New Zealand Architecture Medal, the top award given in any year by the New Zealand Institute of Architects. That decision will be announced at the Awards function in Wellington on 25 May. More images and information on the winners after the break.

“The standard of public and commercial projects was very high,” says Hugh Tennent, the convenor of the New Zealand Institute of Architects awards jury. “The Awards show that, despite the financial constraints we’re all facing, public bodies and private developers are commissioning high-quality buildings. It was also good to see that architects are finding ways to deliver great work in these tight times – as they should.”
