Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

The San­dra Dono­van Sound Shell has won an award at the Aus­tralian Steel In­sti­tute Awards this year.

Slavin Ar­chi­tects won the steel ex­cel­lence in steel clad struc­tures at the awards.

“What is im­por­tant to us is that peo­ple form emo­tional at­tach­ments to our build­ings,” Slavin Ar­chi­tects di­rec­tor Mur­ray Slavin said.

“They en­joy us­ing them whether they are in or around them.

“It’s the recog­ni­tion of so­cial and emo­tional con­nec­tion.

“Some­thing that may be eas­ily over­looked to­day where the fo­cus is more on in­ter­na­tional fashion and trends, rather than the lo­cal con­text.”

Mr Slavin also thanked all those in­volved in bring­ing their vi­sion of the sound shell to life.

“On be­half of the Shire of Man­jimup, I wish to con­grat­u­late Slavin Ar­chi­tects and the project team on your suc­cess in be­ing named the win­ner for Steel Ex­cel­lence in Steel Clad Struc­tures for the San­dra Dono­van Sound Shell at the re­cent 2018 Aus­tralian Steel In­sti­tute Awards,” Man­jimup shire pres­i­dent Paul Omodei said.
