The Architects Board of Western Australia presents an annual award to an architect who has furthered professional and community standards.
The intention of the Award is to recognise architects registered in Western Australia whose attitudes and personal contributions to the profession and/or community have enhanced public confidence in the standing of the profession, and/or promoted public awareness of the profession and the activities of the Board.
There are many architects who, by individual effort and example, ensure that the profession has a respected voice in forming professional and community standards. It is to those, whose true value may otherwise go unrecognised, who this honour is awarded to. It is not intended that the Board Award should be made to recognise the successful career of an architect, building design or academic excellence. It is awarded to recognise special endeavours outside of those which would be considered the normal business activities of an architect.
