Award is great endorsement
THIS year’s Hillson Beasley Award for Educational Architecture went to Scotch College for its middle school buildings, designed by architects Taylor Robinson.
Scotch College headmaster Dr Alec O'Connell said the college was proud of its new middle school complex.
“Receiving the AIA award for the best educational facility is an outstanding endorsement,” Dr O’Connell said.
“The award is further vindication of the work that went into ensuring the design was both contemporary and supportive of the pedagogical and philosophical drivers that are central to our middle school.
“The facilities provide modern and vibrant learning environments that both enhance and encourage collaboration between students and teachers throughout their learning journey."
Churchlands Senior High School also received an Architecture Award for its Year 7 integration into the senior high school, designed by Bateman Architects.
Presbyterian Ladies’ College received a commendation for its library and cafeteria additions, designed by MCDF Architects.
