2015 Sydney Architecture Festival
Today Zoey Chen, an aspiring young architect from our Sydney studio, was recognised for her exceptional design work, awarded with the coveted 2015 Architects Medallion at the Sydney Architecture Festival in Australia.
The Architects Medallion is awarded annually by the NSW Architects Registration Board. The winner is decided by a selection committee from outstanding Master of Architecture graduates across New South Wales.
Zoey was presented with the award at the World Architecture Day celebration at Sydney’s iconic Opera House, and represented HASSELL at the event.
HASSELL has joined leading design thinkers, policymakers and professionals throughout the Sydney Architecture Festival to discuss the role architecture plays in creating exceptional cities. Ken Maher, HASSELL Fellow and David Tickle, global head of Urban Design at HASSELL, contributed to a number of thought-provoking panel discussions.
Sydney is presently going through an immense period of growth and revitalisation, which was a key theme at the festival. HASSELL is involved in a number of key projects that are transforming Sydney such as Darling Harbour Live and the Sydney Light Rail, reflecting the prominent role that architecture and design play in making cities enjoyable for people.
