2021 NGV Architecture Commission opens for registrations

CityLab recently announced that registrations of interest are now open for the 2021 NGV Architecture Commission.

The NGV Commission is an open competition, which asks designers to consider innovative ways to activate one of Melbourne’s great civic spaces, the NGV’s Grollo Equiset Garden, with a thought-provoking temporary installation.

2021 marks the sixth iteration of the Commission. We congratulate past designers of the Commission for winning an array of architecture and landscape architecture awards:

Yhonnie Scarce and Edition Office, In Absence (2019)
2020 Victorian Architecture Awards: Kevin Borland Award for Small Project Architecture

MUIR + OPENWORK, Doubleground (2018)
2019 National Architecture Awards: Small Project Architecture;

2019 Think Brick Awards: Bruce Mackenzie Landscape Award

Retallack Thompson and Other Architects, Garden Wall (2017)
2018 Victorian Architecture Awards: Small Project Architecture
This is a two-stage design competition open to architects or multi-disciplinary teams that include registered architect. Teams can may bring together various design and broader creative disciplines to propose a project that explores new terrain for an architecture commission – from a conceptual, material, experiential or formal sense.
