Australia’s best architectural projects

Being in the real estate industry, I often find myself in conversations with people discussing their homes, investment properties, renovations and the like.  People like to get an idea about popular renovating trends and the best ways to add value to their properties, and frequently ask me about what I’m seeing with regards to the CENTURY 21 properties that are being purchased and sold. 

For those who are interested in the most impressive, innovative designs, I refer them to the different award programs for architectural projects from all around the world. These can help to give some guidance to renovators and builders about what leaders are incorporating into modern housing and perhaps provide inspiration for their own projects.   

One such program is the Australian Institute of Architects National Architecture Awards which were held in Canberra recently.  To accompany the awards, as well as to celebrate the best of contemporary Australian architecture, the Institute has launched a new book called INSPIRE which includes Australia’s 149 state and territory and 34 national award winning architecture projects.

INSPIRE features superb colour images of each project by Australia’s top architectural photographers, personal anecdotes from architects and building sketches.  It is the second book in a series of the 10 annual, limited edition books to be published from 2010 to 2011. 

A limited print run of 3,000 books will be published for the 2011 edition of INSPIRE.  Those renovators/home builders seeking inspiration for their own projects can pick up a copy of the book from specialist bookstores from mid-November, or they can be ordered through Architext at

To speak to a property professional about how you can add value to your property, please feel free to stop by any of the hundreds of CENTURY 21 real estate offices around the country.
