MCEC shortlisted for major international architectural award

The entry for the Melbourne Convention Centre was submitted by Joint Venture Architects Woods Bagot and NH Architecture and has been shortlisted in the Display (Exhibition Centres) category.

On congratulating Nik Karalis and Hamish Lyon, the architects responsible for the design of the award-winning centre, MCEC’s chief executive Leigh Harry said, “The WAF awards celebrate the best architecture from all around the world and Nik and Hamish are two of Australia’s most prominent designers.

“The design of the Melbourne Convention Centre is pure architectural ingenuity and I wish them both the very best of luck with their submission.”

This year’s awards have attracted entries from 81 countries with over 630 award entries submitted, demonstrating the impact the festival has made internationally since its inception in 2008. WAF’s 2009 judging panel includes some of the biggest names in international architecture today, along with clients, critics and other distinguished professionals.

The winners of the WAF awards will be announced on 6 November at an awards ceremony in Barcelona.
