2007 Residential Class 1 Best Renovation - Richard Kirk Architect - Dekkers Residence
There's still time to submit an entry for the Australian Timber Design Awards, but don't delay: entries must be in by 5 PM July 15. And if you've signed up but haven't yet completed your entry, please don't leave things to the last moment. The earlier you get started, the more help we can give you.

If you're having problems with your entry, give us a call on 02 8424 3700 or send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . You may, for instance, need a little guidance on writing your project description or on addressing some of the supplementary questions. The most common problem is with project galleries: remember to upload a zip file of your images, not of the directory/folder containing your images.

Been working on a project that you think could be a winner? Have a look at our entry categories and our galleries of previous winners. And when you're ready to start on your online entry, fill in a registration form. (You may add to and modify your entry up until the cutoff date, July 15.)

The submission deadline of the Australian Timber Design Awards has been extended to July 15! This gives those architects and design professionals still working on their submissions a little extra time to get everything finalised. And if you've already submitted your entry but want to make further changes to it, email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we'll turn the edit facility for your entry back on.

This extension accommodates the many requests we've received from architects for extra time in which to track down missing images and confirm timber certification. Veterans of architectural awards know that the final week before a cutoff date can be frantic. We hope this change has made things a little easier on our participants.

Got a project that you think could be a winner? Have a look at our entry categories and last year's winners. And when you're ready to start on your online entry, fill in a registration. (You may add to and modify your entry up until the new cutoff date, July 15.)
 
Next generation timber building systems on the way E-mail

2006 Public & Commercial Buildings - Other Outstanding Use of Timber - H2o Architects - Deakin University Central Precinct
2006 Public & Commercial Buildings - Other Outstanding Use of Timber - H2o Architects - Deakin University Central Precinct
The Australian Timber Design Awards is convinced that a new generation of timber building systems is about to transform architecture and construction in Australia.

You may have heard, for instance, of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), a large format solid wood panel product to be used extensively in the landmark Delta timber high rise -- but there are more systems on the way. Just coming into production is Expan: a range of composite and post-stressed, prefabricated timber systems that lock together using embedded metal tendons. Products like these meld the aesthetics and workability of timber with the strength and endurance of concrete and steel. Michael Green, guest judge for last year's Awards, believes that they will lead in time to wide span, high rise timber buildings.

So where are the early adopters in Australia? We've already mentioned the Delta timber high rise. And yes, we're seeing more high-rise timber buildings planned: four to ten storey timber buildings are on the way. But we're still waiting to see a large, many storey timber building in the Public or Commercial Buildings category of the Australian Timber Design Awards. A building like that would be a very competitive entry indeed!

Got a project that you think could be a winner? Have a look at our entry categories and last year's winners. And when you're ready to start on your online entry, fill in a registration. (You may add to and modify your entry up until 17 June.)

Interested in these new timber building systems? Email your details to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and the Awards team will be in touch. Maybe you have a future winner on the way!

From our archives: 2004 Environmental Commitment - Studio 101 Architects - Virgo Residence
Another gallery of past winners has just gone live here on the Australian Timber Design Awards website. That's another showcase of the best in Australian timber design for you to enjoy. And we've expanded our popular Timber Inspiration Gallery yet again, making it one of the largest galleries of timber in architecture to be found online.

We're hoping that all this timber design eye-candy will get you thinking about entering the 2011 Awards. If you've got what you think could be a winning project, have a look at our entry categories and last year's winners. And when you're ready to start on your online submission, sign up for the 2011 Awards. (You may add to and modify your entry up until 17 June.)
