Winner Best Response to a Design Brief

Thomas Harrington - Holmesglen Institute

Thomas has responded to the brief for a multipurpose sports centre within the Fisherman’s Bend precinct in a well researched and methodical way, yet he has been creative and fresh in his design approach. The result is an elegant and refined design solution for the site, supported by beautiful renders that perfectly capture the light filled essence of the design.

The judges considered Thomas’s project to be a stand out entry and congratulate Thomas on a well thought out design solution.

Winner Best Digital Presentation

Don Van Tran - Swinburne University

Don’s digital presentation is of a high standard with a realistic 3D depiction of his design. The fly through of the interiors in particular gave a good feel for the spaces as they would be experienced as a built form.

Overall an excellent digital presentation and a worthy winner.

Winner Best Group Project

Matthew Gibbs, Luke Henry and Joel Lybyk - The Gordon

Working on group projects when studying can be a challenge, the temptation is often to avoid them whenever possible! However, the fact is, in your working lives you will more often than not work on a project as part of a team. The project submitted by Matthew, Luke and Joel from The Gordon is strong and cohesive.

There is no clear lineage to different authors within the design or the presentation. It has clearly been a good team effort. Well done!
