Bond Abedian School of Architecture wins State Award
Bond University’s Abedian School of Architecture (ASA) was honoured with a State Award in the Public Building category at the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) Queensland Awards ceremony on Friday, June 20.
The innovative, ultra-modern new building was designed by globally renowned architect and Bond visiting academic Sir Peter Cook and partner Gavin Robotham from CRAB Studios in London, and was built by ADCO Constructions.
This recognition puts the building in the running for National Building of the Year when projects from all states are considered in late 2014.
Architecture students and members of the Faculty of Society & Design and Bond community should be very proud of this achievement, which designates Bond’s teaching environment one of the best places in the nation to study.
Congratulations also to Assistant Professor Matthew Eagle whose Dolphin Court Residence in Palm Beach received a State Commendation at the awards.
In March this year, the Abedian School of Architecture was named Gold Coast & Northern Rivers ‘Public Building of the Year’ and Assistant Professor Eagle’s Dolphin Court residence was recognised as Gold Coast House of the Year, at the AIA’s Regional Architecture Awards.
