Jury citation:

This project is the exciting first phase of the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct Masterplan. Wrapped in a landscape, the stage celebrates the local climate and context and provides new opportunities for congregation and celebration. It successfully demonstrates how open space can foster public life. The seamless integration of landscape and architecture is a testament to the effective partnership between the client, the community and the multidisciplinary design team. It makes a valuable contribution to the community and is a significant drawcard for local and international visitors.
