2017 Student Design Awards

The NZIA Central Innovation Student Design Awards showcase the talents of the best fifth-year architecture students from New Zealand's three schools of architecture.

The 2017 awards will be held at the Grand Tearoom of the Heritage Hotel in Auckland Central from 29-30 November. The awards ceremony will be held on the evening of Thursday 30 November. As in previous years, a three-member jury with strong ties to both academia and the profession will judge 12 student entries (four each from Unitec, The University of Auckland and Victoria University of Wellington). The jury will be led by NZIA President Christina van Bohemen who heads the Judging panel comprising: the New Zealand Judge, Jon Rennie from Athfield Architects; and the Australian Judge, Rachel Neeson from the Sydney practice Neeson Murcutt Architects.  Before the awards prize-giving local architects, academics and interested members of the public are able to view the exhibitions of student work before a short lecture is presented by the visiting Australian juror.
