Forty-seven outstanding projects from across the country have been shortlisted for the 2016 New Zealand Architecture Awards. The scale and typology of the shortlisted projects are wide-ranging and include a small garden room in Auckland, a wellness retreat in Glenorchy and a public high school in Wairoa. 

The 2016 jury is made up of Christchurch architect Jasper van der Lingen, Auckland architects Megan Edwards and Michael O’Sullivan, and Melbourne architect Andrew Maynard. 

“Private houses continue to be a strength of New Zealand architecture but it’s good to see that multi-unit housing is being designed to a high standard,” jury convenor van der Lingen commented. “The jury is also looking forward to visiting projects that enhance the public realm, like the war memorial park in Wellington and the Light Path cycleway in Auckland.”
