Makers Workshop has received the major public building award for the Australian Institute of Architects (Tasmania).
Renowned Australian architect Ian Moore chaired the jury which awarded Burnie Makers the Alan C Walker award for Public Architecture. The jury noted:
"This is architecture with an arresting attitude to vision – looking out pointedly at different aspects of its setting – port, town, hinterland, ocean and built context – just as it demands to be looked at from different vantage points, distances and times of day and night. Completed on a stringent budget within 15 months from initial briefing, the Makers’ Workshop is a testament to lucid architectural intent and direction."
