The 2010 Australian Timber Design Awards Magazine
Public interest in timber design is booming -- have you got what it takes to meet the demand? Get up-to-date with the latest innovations and trends -- and get thinking about your entry into the 2011 Australian Timber Design Awards -- with the annual Australian Timber Design Awards Magazine. It's available in full online, or we can send you a copy at no cost.

The magazine shows how the best firms in Australasia are using groundbreaking new timber products to drive what Michael Green, principal of Marcus Prize nominated MGB Architecture of Vancouver, has termed a "wood revolution".

Michael used his recent speaking tour of Australia -- during which he served as guest judge of the 2010 Awards -- to expound on this vision. He believes that environmental considerations and innovations in engineered wood products have turned timber into the building material of the future. His take-home message: get on top of these innovations before the timber design boom hits Australia.

To get a sneak peek at what the future holds for Australian timber design, read through the online ATDA magazine. Free copies of the magazine may be ordered from This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 02 8424 3700 (while stocks last).

NZ Wood and the Australian Timber Design Awards announce the introduction of a Trans-Tasman Timber Design Award! The competition will be open to the design communities in Australia and New Zealand and will comprise awards for:
  • Residential housing
  • Commercial construction
  • Community

A winner and runner up will be announced in each category.

Entries will be drawn from the finalists in the recent Australian and New Zealand awards, both of which have taken place in the last month.

"This will be the first year such Trans-Tasman awards have been made and we intend it to be the first of many," says Geoff Henley programme manager of NZ Wood.

"Both Australia and New Zealand have built houses in wood for generations. It is part of the ANZAC culture. However, interest in wood for other applications has blossomed in the last few years and there is great interest in its use in commercial, community and multi-storey construction", says Geoff Henley

"Awards give us the opportunity to incentivise superior design in wood. Being such a versatile product the only limitation is the imagination of the designer. Trans-Tasman Awards give designers in both countries the opportunity to show what they are capable of across a larger market," says Andrew Dunn, chief executive, Timber Development Association NSW.

Judging for the awards by an Australia/New Zealand panel will take place in the next few weeks with the winners being announced just before Christmas.

"It’s not our intention to have a Trans-Tasman Awards ceremony this year, but we are tracking towards an international timber conference that will be held in 2012 -- at which time all winners between now and then will be given recognition”, says Mr Dunn.
 
2010 National Winners announced E-mail
Monday, 01 November 2010 00:00

The national winners of the 2010 Australian Timber Design Awards have been announced! The grand prize went to David Boyle Architect for Burridge Read Residence. This project stood apart for its use of a variety of new and recycled timbers, hand-crafted timber joinery and various wood sculptural elements. Judges were particularly impressed by the manner in which timber was used to meld the house into the surrounding national park.

Choosing this year's winners proved unusually difficult, as the projects under consideration were, by general agreement, more diverse than in any previous year. Judges remarked on the widespread use of recycled timbers and on entrants' depth of knowledge of the aesthetic and structural properties of timber.

Winners were announced at the National ATDA Presentation Night on October 29 at Luna Park, Sydney. Major figures from government, the timber industry, and the design community were on hand to enjoy what has become the premier event in the timber design calendar.

Thank you to our judges, our sponsors and, most of all, the many members of the Australian timber design and architecture community who entered projects. The success of the 2010 Australian Timber Design Awards – Australasia's foremost timber design and architectural awards – is due to you.
