Welcome to the 2020 Lysaght Inspirations Design Awards
Lysaght has proudly been a part of the Australian architectural landscape for over 150 years. Our range of steel building products have helped architects, designers and builders shape our country’s built environment providing structures that have housed, sheltered and protected generations of Australians.
Following its successful introduction in 2018, the Lysaght Inspirations Design Awards return this year to celebrate outstanding Australian architectural work that incorporates LYSAGHT® steel building products. The competition for architects, designers and building owners feature as its grand prize a trip for two to the World Architectural Festival in Amsterdam in November.
The competition categories are*:
- Commercial and Industrial Projects (office, retail, warehouse, education, institutions, factories, processing facilities and agricultural)
- Residential Projects (houses, villas, apartments, aged care and similar)
- ZENITH™ Projects (structures utilising products from the LYSAGHT ZENITH™ range of architectural cladding)
- Heritage/Restoration Projects (refurbishment of existing building and structures)
- Student Category (open to all architectural or design students currently enrolled at Australian universities, as well as recent graduates)
The winner of the Student Category will receive a cash prize of $5,000 cash, while the winners of all other categories will receive $2,000 and their winning projects will feature in the next edition of Lysaght’s ‘Build On Inspiration’ publication.
All category winners (apart from the Student Category) will then be in the running for the major award of the program, ‘Lysaght Inspirations Design Award’. This ultimate winner will receive a trip for two to the World Architectural Festival in Amsterdam in December this year, as well as $5,000 spending money.
