The Parramatta City River Strategy has been shortlisted for the WAN Future Projects Urban Design Award 2016

The award is a celebration of excellence for ‘design only’ projects that display vision and progressive thinking within this sector. 

This year’s respected jury panel within the Urban Design category were: Neil Lewin, Deputy Regional Director at IBI Group, Bryan Avery MBE, Principal at Avery Associates Architects and Stephen Luoni, Director at The University of Arkansas Community Design Center.

The jury commented: “The proposal redeploys the water as a backdrop to urban life and theatre brought back to the water’s edge. The proposed quay is a beautiful anchoring point between city and water.”

“This project shows a real understanding of the location and how to place-make. The architects show a real understanding of the flood-flow, the different height issues, in my eyes a very strong contender.”
