The AA Prize for Unbuilt Work seeks conceptually rigorous, inventive responses to contemporary architectural issues. An initiative of Architecture Australia, the national magazine of the Australian Institute of Architects, the AA Prize promotes debate about architecture and architectural ideas by recognizing excellence in unbuilt projects. It offers an opportunity to discuss architectural works at the conceptual stage, and recognizes projects which might contribute to the development of architectural discourse in Australia.
The annual program is open to architects, graduates, students and other built environment professionals. The AA Prize in 2008 and 2009 is presented in partnership with Izona by Fisher&Paykel. The overall winner receives a prize of $3000, along with an Izona CoolDrawer for the practice’s studio.
