A colourful evening

It was my first journey into the 26 year old Dulux colour awards. This is one of several industry awards in architecture, and this one now covers New Zealand also, so it was a big event. I have to admit the main reason I went along was that it was in the Regent Theatre, which I had never ventured into before, musicals not being my thing. The basement ballroom is a hidden Melbourne treasure, giant in scale, yet detailed to the umpteenth degree in 1920s exoticist splendour. Hundreds of ceiling panels, each individually painted. A late nod to the Marriner Group for bringing this beauty back from rat-infestedness.

ashton raggatt mcdougall - think brick awards

Ashton Raggatt McDougall won the About Face award this evening at the Think Brick awards in Myer’s Mural Hall. In a generous move, ARM director Ian McDougall immediately donated the $20,000 bounty to the trust fund set up for Nick Murcutt and Rachel Neeson’s children.

Convention dictates

NH ‘carted’ away four tubes of paper tonight – various awards for their convention centre on Melbourne’s Yarra. It looks like a fine piece of work, but I’ve never stepped over the threshold – not a great convention attendee. Looking at the Convention Centre website , they only have two conferences booked in the next three months. Must be the off season.

ARM get gonged

Not unpredictably, Ashton Raggatt McDougall grabbed the Gold Logie at the Victorian Architecture Awards for the Melbourne Recital Centre. A good rundown of last night can be found, oddly enough, on the American Bustler website.
