CITY OF ADELAIDE PRIZE PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD

Cast your vote here for St Mary's Corner for the 2019 City of Adelaide Prize People's Choice Award, which will be announced at the Awards Presentation Dinner on Saturday 29 June.

 

St Mary’s College has developed a new building to house its senior school, visual arts faculty and PE facilities on the western edge of Adelaide’s CBD. At street level, a brick wall articulated by bands of bricks with subtle colour variations, continues the school’s language of a walled campus. The façade above creates a playful layering of zinc and polycarbonate that shifts, pulls and peels back to reveal the ‘floating corner’, allowing the building to illuminate at night.

Architecture can tell stories and be layered with meaning to create a stronger sense of relevance for its users. The narrative at St Mary’s College is centred on confidence, self-awareness, diversity and a pioneering spirit.

The result is a development that not only provides fit for purpose contemporary learning spaces, it has enhanced the streetscape of Adelaide. This ‘edge’ of the city is now a landmark. It is the St Mary’s Corner.

The City of Adelaide Prize is a state category within the prestigious South Australian Architecture Awards Program run by the Australian Institute of Architects (SA). The Prize recognises and awards innovative projects, including buildings, landscapes and open spaces, street and laneway activation, public art installations and temporary urban experiments that activate and enliven the city’s public spaces and engage with the community.
