The annual Holdmark Innovation Award, presented by Sydney Design Week Principal Partner Holdmark, recognises excellence and innovation in engineering, architecture and the built environment.

Established to recognise and celebrate outstanding contemporary examples of innovative design in the Australian built environment, the award will be presented annually at Sydney Design Week 2023 – Powerhouse’s flagship design program.

The winner of the 2023 Holdmark Innovation Award will receive a $10,000 cash prize.

The selection panel includes Marni Reti (Kaunitz Yeung Architecture), Hannah Slater (Planning NSW & ACT Design Lead, Arup), Ninotschka Titchkosky (Co-CEO, BVN), Keinton Butler (Senior Curator, Design & Architecture, Powerhouse), and Kevin Nassif (COO, Holdmark Property Group).

This initiative reinforces Powerhouse and Holdmark’s commitment to promoting excellence in architecture, engineering, and the built environment, and raising the profile of Australian practitioners around the world.

Australian practices working in architecture, engineering, urban design and planning are invited to submit their projects.
