2020 AIA Awards

The Institute is dedicated to the promotion of Australian architects and architecture in both national and global arenas. Since 1981, they have upheld excellence in the profession by recognising best practice in the field through their National Architecture Awards program and inspiring others to continue striving to positively shape communities through architecture.

Established in 1930, the Australian Institute of Architects is the peak body for the architecture profession in Australia. They represent over 11,500 members globally and are dedicated to improving the built environment and the communities we all call home by promoting quality, responsible, sustainable design.

The Australian Institute of Architects announced the winners of the 2020 Western Australian Architecture Awards via a live broadcast on 26 June, 2020.

The state’s top honour, The George Temple Poole Award, went to Pingelly Recreation and Cultural Centre by Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects with Advanced Timber Concepts Studio.


Pingelly Recreation also took home the Wallace Greenham Award for Sustainable Architecture. This public architecture award was proudly sponsored by Living Edge and presented by Living Edge WA state manager Eugene Hooks who also took part on the judging panel.


Given COVID restrictions at the time of awards, the AIA were unable to host a physical event to celebrate such industry achievements. In light of the recent majorly improved COVID status in WA, Living Edge was proud to host the postponed AIA official afterparty.

It was our pleasure to host a gathering of esteemed architects, designers, and colleagues in celebration of the category winners and those nominated.

Living Edge acknowledges the Traditional
Owners of Country throughout Australia.
We pay our respects to Elders past and present.
