Twenty-nine projects have been shortlisted in the 2020 Waikato / Bay of Plenty Architecture Awards.
The shortlisted projects were selected from a strong roster of entries in the awards programme of the Waikato / Bay of Plenty Branch of Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA).
The shortlist was compiled by a jury led by Tauranga architect John Henderson and including fellow architects Fraser Cameron from Taupō, Sharon Jansen from Wellington, and Alice Hutchison, Director of Tauranga Art Gallery.
Henderson said making the shortlist was a significant achievement.
"It's great to see what a difference good architecture is making in the communities of our region.
"The shortlist includes outstanding examples of the wide range of buildings that architects design, from schools, offices and public buildings to houses and baches," Henderson said.
The jury shortlisted a university campus and airport in Tauranga, a school at Ōhope beach, a convent chapel and commercial buildings in Hamilton, the large Temple View urban design project, and 19 houses around the Waikato / Bay of Plenty region.
The COVID-19 lockdown has meant that site visits to shortlisted projects by juries around the country have been put on hold.
Resumption of the visits or the adoption of alternative means of deciding award-winners are dependent on the national measures adopted to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
