Home Living : June 19th 2012
2 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, June 19, 2012 MB DESIGN ODYSSEY TRIP OF A LIFETIME Susan Redman Architect Shaun Carter was one of five winners on the 2012 Dulux Study Tour. He recently returned from visits to Dubai, Berlin and London. ARCHITECTURE TOUR Details: Carterwilliamson Architects on 9799 4472, or visit carterwilliamson.com IN May, five of the country's most promis- ing architects were named recipients of an award to acknowledge their talents. The award was sponsored by Dulux and gave the architects the chance to embark on a 10-day overseas trip. The itinerary included visit- ing some of the world's most remarkable architectural sites as well as meeting world renowned architects. This year, the winners of the coveted Dulux Study Tour travelled to the United Arab Emirates, Germany and London. Dulux general manager -- trade division, Phil White said: ''It's Dulux's desire to make the overall experience and benefits gained by the winners to be life changing in their architectural careers.'' From 60 short-listed entries for the award, local inner-west architect Shaun Carter, the only Sydney-based winner, impressed the jury with his dedication and passion. He was particularly inspired with the architecture of the European leg of the tour. ''Berlin was hip and cool,'' he said. ''There are architects there that are crazy, brave, entrepreneurial and out to change the world.'' As for public spaces, Carter said there is a lesson to be learned from the way Europeans create city environments. ''Sydney-siders would love most of the public spaces of London and Berlin,'' he said. ''They don't realise they, too, can have this type of city. Berlin's 1920s interlocking courtyard housing schemes, for example, are truly inspirational.'' London is home to many ''starchitects'' and Carter and his fellow award-winners had the chance to visit one of that city's most enlightened practices. ''Foster + Part- ners' campus was extraordinary in its professionalism, scope and commercialism. It is a 1250 people practice on a campus on the Thames with three model shops, a whole material room and a R&D section.'' Carter said Dulux's and the Australian Institute of Architects' recognition of his work designing buildings characterised by light and space has meant a lot to him.
