OVGA Spring Message


The latest OVGA Message, written by David Islip, features in the Spring edition of 'Architect Victoria' magazine, published the Victorian Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects.

The article focuses on architectural design competitions, and the Office's recommendations for conducting successful competitions.

"The OVGA advocates that, when done well, competitions can raise the public profile of a project, engage community in debate, distance the project from political issues, solve wicked problems and unlock the potential of a program or context. Further there is a need to appreciate the cultural legacy of entries that don't win or the winning entry that may never be built. Competitions act as a powerful catalyst to elevate the design conversation and should be embraced by government to enhance the culture of exemplar public buildings."
