New World City Design Guide: Buildings that Breathe has been awarded in the Sustainable Architecture Category at the Queensland State Architecture Awards 2017, and commended in the Urban Design category.

The guide was prepared by Urbis Associate Directors Madonna Locke and Nicholas Stevenson in collaboration with Brisbane City Council and Arkhefield.

New World City Design Guide: Buildings that Breathe is a multi-dimensional tool prepared to ensure the creation of a subtropical cityscape for Brisbane which is recognised internationally.

It is conceived as a common reference point among architects, planners, developers and the community when discussing the design of high-density buildings in Brisbane’s city centre and urban centres.

The awards, announced on Friday June 23, were selected by the State Jury from a field of 82 entries that received Regional Commendations at their respective Regional Architecture Awards ceremonies earlier in the year.

The next stage is the National Architecture Awards in Canberra on Thursday 2 November.
