Town Hall celebrations finish with design award

THE winning concept for the Hobart Town Hall Design Award will be announced on Friday 9 December, topping off a year of celebrations for the hall’s 150th anniversary.

The design award is a one-off competition for Tasmanian designers to come up with a concept for a three-dimensional object to be displayed in the Hobart Town Hall.

Nine designers made it to the final cut and the winner will receive $20,000 to develop the concept and fabricate it. Once the artwork is created, it will be put on permanent display.

The independent panel of judges includes Peter Hughes from the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Karina Clarke from Design Tasmania and Zoe Veness from the University of Tasmania (UTAS).

Coordinated and presented by the City of Hobart in partnership with UTAS, the design award exhibition is being held at the university’s Plimsoll Gallery in Hunter Street, Hobart from 10 December 2016 until 29 January 2017.
