Here's what happened in 2017

The 2017 program winners embarked on an exciting tour of Barcelona, London and Prague in May where they experienced first hand some of the best architectural sites and practices.

After receiving over 200 entries, the jury, comprising of an esteemed group of Architects from around Australia had the demanding task of selecting the winners from an enormously talented final round field of seventy-two young leaders and was deeply impressed with the achievements of all applicants. In making their decision, the jury considered activities across the criteria of individual contribution to architectural practice, education, design excellence and community involvement. They 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 group.

The tour participants included Louisa Gee, Morgan Jenkins, Alberto Quizon, Claire Scorpo and Imogene Tudor as the winners of the 2017 Dulux Study Tour.

The Dulux Study Tour is a collaborative initiative between Dulux, the Australian Institute of Architects and Emerging Architect and Graduate Network (EmAGN).

For the participants of the 2017 Dulux Study Tour, it was experiencing the patterns of Barcelona.

What’s a word for that feeling when you finally arrive at the airport? Deadlines and tasks finished in a flurry, plants left unwatered, clothes in a shamble in your bag. “As long as you’ve got your passport, you’re ok,” we were told.
