jury citation This project demonstrates a clarity of idea, which is carefully resolved in an engaging proposal for a work of architecture that could be built. A scheme for a community building in a regional centre, it takes its context seriously as a generator of architectural form while also lifting that context out of the banal.
Three strategies are woven together to generate the dramatic architectural form - civic orientation to the street, orientation to the sun and the formal qualities of the surrounding crop landscape. The result is a furrowed, multigrained civic "crop" - a proposal that brings a sense of civitas to the regional community and that demonstrates a clear understanding of a landscape as it relates to agriculture.
