Landcorp’s Gen Y Competition Awards

The GA team L-R: Lisa McGann, Greg James, Johannes Lupolo Chan, Miriam Jeffreys, Jenni Star

The winner of Landcorp’s Gen Y housing Competition was announced last Monday night, at a very polished awards soirĂ©e held at the Old Swan Brewery, and compared by the incomparable Fenella Kernebone. Congratulations go to David Barr and his team for taking home the Prize. We can’t wait to see his design built!

The Gresley Abas team did not go home empty-handed however, earning the sole Commendation awarded in the competition. Word is the judging was very close, and we’re happy to hear that we provided the judges with a compelling alternative and a difficult decision to make. The Gap House was commended for it’s rationality, affordability, replicability, and it’s highly legible plan. We agree (of course!) so perhaps the Gap House will find another incarnation someday.

Enormous thanks go to Landcorp – particularly Anna Evangelisti who championed and ran the competition.
