The Victorian Government’s commitment to being at the forefront of infrastructure design was recognised at the 2017 Victorian Architecture Awards.
The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) took out two prizes; the Victorian Medal and the William Wardell Award for Public Architecture.
Designed by Silver Thomas Hanley, DesignInc and McBride Charles Ryan, the VCCC beat more than 200 entrants for the top honour; The Victorian Medal.
Not only is the Centre aesthetically stunning but it has become a magnet for the world’s best cancer researchers.
“There is nothing like this in the world,” says VCCC Board Member, Dale Fisher, and the building itself helps to attract and retain the best of international researchers.
The jury were unanimous and glowing in their praise, “it is an exemplary building which will serve the Victorian community for decades to come.”
VCCC also celebrated success at The National Infrastructure Awards, The Government Design Awards and The National Architecture Awards.
