Alice Springs has dominated the NT Architecture Awards announced last Friday, with Susan Dugdale and Associates taking out the top award, plus awards for urban design, steel architecture and commercial architecture. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
No other single entity has put its stamp on the contemporary face of the Alice Springs town centre to the same extent. With the redevelopment of the northern Todd Mall and Parsons Street and the construction of the Green Well Building on Bath Street, the design work of architects Susan Dugdale and Associates has raised the bar of the built environment across key sites from east to west, reflecting a commitment to the idea that “Alice Springs is a special place”.
