Australia by Design: Architecture

australia by design

Now in its fourth year, this highly successful series, Australia by Design: Architecture, uncovers the outstanding projects that exemplify excellence in Australian architectural design. We showcase the human story behind some of the most innovative and creative architects and builders in Australia. At the conclusion of each episode, our lead architects and an expert panel of industry leaders announce which of the properties are the most outstanding and therefore will go through to the ‘best of the best’ final episode. In the sixth and final episode, we count down the top 10 to determine which is Australia’s ultimate architectural statement of the year.
