WA well represented in CAPIThetiCAL competition

With 114 submissions from 24 countries, it was interesting that both the first place winner and the commendation, are both WA firms. And interesting that they both made parallels with a more efficient Australaan capital situated in northern Australia.

First Prize went to Ecoscape Aust Pty Ltd for their entry ‘The Northern Capital’ and the Commendation went to Dr Julian Bolleter and Professor Richard Weller, of the Australian Urban Design Research Centre for their entry ‘Made in Australia: The Future of Australian Cities’.

Well done to both teams. Architecture & Design has a great wrap-up on their site, including the jury citations. The Institute also has a bit more information and pictures.
