2019 Built Environment Awards

Thursday, 18 April 2019

Celebrate the rich cultural and architectural heritage of the Inner West at this free event.

Guest speaker at this year’s awards is comedian, TV and radio host Tim Ross. For the last six years, Ross has performed, presented and campaigned to uphold the presence and value of Australian architecture and design.

“Each year the competition gets harder and harder because of the inimitable heritage and design of the local area,” said Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne.

“The Inner West is a mix of old and new where we try to maintain the historical features and balance them with new developments all while increasing our sustainability.”

The Built Environment Awards are three separate programs that recognise the heritage and sustainable practices of the Inner West including:

• The Marrickville Medal for Conservation celebrates built conservation works that contribute to the understanding and preservation of the Inner West’s rich cultural and architectural heritage. This medal has been awarded annually since 1995 and was one of the first of its kind in New South Wales.

• The Sustainable Design Award recognises the contribution sustainable architecture and building works make to our community.

• The Urban Photography Competition encourages residents to engage with the Inner West Council urban landscape.

Last year’s winners include the restoration of the original detailing of a riverside terrace home in Marrickville to its former 1886 Victorian Italiante glory and a ‘vibrant and punchy’ image of New Canterbury Road.

The Awards are part of the National Trust’s Australian Heritage Festival which runs throughout April and May.

Saturday, 4 May, 2-4pm
Kirkbride Theatre and Foyer, Sydney College of the Arts, Lilyfield.
