  • Totally agreed. Pure marketing acrobatics. Good exposure for the ozzies though. Great practice for the local designers. However, not so beneficial for the overall design….
    A chinesse competition would have been more transparent.

    Watch out for Australian ‘competitions’ in the future.

    The Australian affair, even if it was organized by a Government official body, turned out to be simply an embarassing expression of the Australian frustration of not being “international” enough… The results for the first stage were: 4 out of 5 of the shortlisted entries were from Australia and NewZealand. All this, in spite of the fact that, according to the organizers themselves, only 1 third of the total number of entries were originated in Australia…

    Judge for yourselves.
