Architects encouraged to register their interest in Pier Pavilion design competition

10 Jun 2020

The NSW Government is inviting registered architects from around Australia to enter their ideas for a new Pier Pavilion at Watermans Cove in Barangaroo South. The competition will celebrate the new pier at Barangaroo with a new shade and canopy structure, a unique and rare opportunity for Australian architects to mark their place on the iconic Sydney Harbour waterfront.

Opening on Tuesday 23 June, the first stage of the design competition is an open and anonymous ideas competition, exclusively for Australian architects. Five entrants from Stage 1 will be shortlisted by a jury and invited to develop their designs in Stage 2 where they will be paid $50,000 for their participation. The winner of the competition will have the opportunity to follow the project through to construction and bring their idea to life.

From Tuesday 23 June, interested architects will be able to download the competition documents and then will have until 6 August to enter their designs. Please visit the webpage for more information and to register your interest.
