Minister's Award for Urban Design
The Minister's Award for Urban Design recognises contemporary Queensland urban design projects of the highest quality. It encourages cities, towns and communities across Queensland to strive for best practice in all projects. The award highlights:
- the critical role of good urban design in shaping Queensland
- how collaborative relationships can lead to the successful development of the built environment.
Nominations for the 2024 Minister’s Awards for Urban Design, the Malcolm Middleton Award for Liveable Design and the Movement and Place Award will open in March 2024 and typically includes entries from the Australian Urban Design Awards held in the preceding year. Please contact the Office of the Queensland Government Architect at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
In 2023, 29 nominations were received for the Minister’s Award for Urban Design and two new subcategories, the Malcolm Middleton Award for Liveable Design and the Movement and Place Award in partnership with the Department of Transport and Main Roads. Ranging from city-shaping policy thinking to fine-grain projects at a local or neighbourhood level, the nominations reflect a state-wide commitment to good design outcomes within the built environment.
This year the juries have recommended 3 Awards and 6 commendations for projects that:
- challenge the status quo
- demonstrate leadership and design excellence
- will leave lasting, sustainable legacies for the broader community, albeit at varying scales.
