CCAA Celebrates its 90th Year with 10 Most Outstanding Concrete Works Announcement

As part of the association's 90th year celebrations, CCAA announced Australia's 10 Most Outstanding Concrete Public Architectural Works at a media event, on Monday 26 August 2019 at the Sydney Opera House.

"To mark our 90th year, we embarked on a quest to find Australia's most important and distinctive concrete public architectural landmarks, highlighting the central role that concrete has played in Australia's urban landscape throughout the past nine decade." CEO, Ken Slattery.

The list highlights the aesthetic, environmental and social contributions concrete has made, and continues to make, to Australia's urban landscapes since the organisation began. Some of the structures in the list, sit in harmony with the landscape, while others are proudly uncompromising; some have Brutalist, geometric composition while others have continuous free-flowing forms, but collectively, this list captures the limitless potential of concrete.

CCAA is proud to share the ten most outstanding concrete public architectural works, as selected by a leading panel of expert judges.

The 10 Most Outstanding Concrete Public Architectural Works are: Australian Academy of Sciences | Australia Square | Gladesville Bridge | High Court of Australia | James Cook University Library | Melbourne University Carpark | Punchbowl Mosque | Queensland Art Gallery | Sydney Opera House and Victorian State Offices.
