Now in its 10th year, the Dulux Study Tour hopes to recognise “Australia’s next generation of emerging architectural talent.” The five winners get to participate in a tour of Barcelona, London and Prague studying architectural sites and practices.
The winners were judged on architectural practice, education, design excellence and community involvement.
Below are the Jury Comments from the jury Chair, Ken Maher:
“We are delighted to announce that Louisa Gee, Morgan Jenkins, Alberto Quizon, Claire Scorpo and Imogene Tudor will be participating in the 2017 Dulux Study Tour. The jury had the demanding task of selecting these five from an enormously talented field of seventy-two young leaders and was deeply impressed with the achievements of all applicants. In making our critical judgement we have considered activities across the criteria of individual contribution to architectural practice, education, design excellence and community involvement. We also took into account the value to the participants of exposure to international projects and practices, and the diversity and balance of interests and experience within the selected cohort. Given the standard of applicants, the jury encourages those not selected and still eligible to submit again next year. Thanks are due to Dulux for its generous support and to my fellow jurors Cameron Bruhn, Jennifer Cunich, Marissa Lindquist, Ksenia Totoeva and Phil White for giving their insight and wisdom freely to the selection process. Congratulations to all five participants – our future as a profession is in good hands.”
More about Imogene:
Imogene Tudor is a born leader. Her experience and enthusiasm are evidenced by her many professional pursuits: she works across practice, teaching, community and journalism. A registered architect in New South Wales, Tudor graduated from the University of New South Wales in 2006 with First Class Honours. She went on to work at BVN, Staughton Thorne and DRAW. A recent career highlight was leading the team of architects working with Oscar-winning designer Catherine Martin of Bazmark on the refurbishment of an Art Deco hotel in Miami. Tudor is currently a senior architect with Sam Crawford Architects and leads their public projects. She complements her architectural practice with an active role in academia and architectural media. Over the last seven years, she has taught at the University of Technology Sydney, the University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne in design, communication, professional practice and digital fabrication. Her writing and photography have been widely published in Australian architectural media. As an advocate for architectural discourse in Sydney, Tudor co-founded Make-Space for Architecture – a not-for-profit association focused on public forums, workshops and exhibitions. The jury is confident that Tudor’s inclusion in the 2017 Dulux Study Tour will benefit not only her personally, but the profession as a whole, as she continues to teach, write, talk and design thoughtful buildings and public spaces.
