    Canberra Medallion

    We are delighted to announce that Constitution Avenue has been awarded the John Overall Prize for Urban Design and the Canberra Medallion at the recent ACT Institute of Architects Awards. The project was a collaboration involving the National Capital Authority, Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture, Hill Thalis, SMEC and AECOM. The jury citation notes that, ‘ the character of the avenue is responsive to its location and varies in scale from civic to boulevard, bushland to ceremonial effortlessly.’ It describes the project an exemplar of how to plan, design and deliver public domain works.

SFS last night: does this really look like a venue at end of its useful life? Over 44 000, a ground record, didn’t think so. In a bumper weekend of all sorts of sport, Australia vs Ireland - great atmosphere, sightlines, good surface, trivial problems with services that surely can be fixed up at so much lower cost-invest $$ in grass roots sport @GladysB & #SCGTrust; Stop Sydney Football Stadium demolition now. #sfs #stadium #atmosphere #sydney football stadium #footballstadium #rugbyunion #australiavsireland #rugbyuniontestmatch #sydneytest #wallabies #coxarchitecture #philipcox #arup #moorepark #recordcrowd #publicplace #publicsydney
