Jury Citations: The Melbourne Convention Centre and Entertainment Centre is the first convention centre in the world to achieve a 6 Star Green Star environmental rating. This unique project reveals a number of design ideas that make it a leading project in contemporary world architecture. The green building's innovative sustainable design and operational features ensure that the comforts of delegates as well as the protection of the environment go hand-in-hand. This is a building that has been carefully crafted to make it a significant architectural experience for Melbourne and internationally. It is conscious that it is part the tradition of architecture being in the frontlines of making public spaces a significant part of Melbourne’s cultural reputation. Further, the Convention Centre had been built in an incredibly short time frame in the most complex of crowded urban surroundings, and has delivered Australia’s best convention and exhibition complex in an environmentally sensitive and function friendly way.
