ARCHITEAM AWARDS 2021


Cultivating creativity in the COVID era


Dolphin/caterpillar. Rabbit/frog. Duck/turtle. Mythical fusions represent unexpected beauty through human intervention: how the most innovative designs can emerge from unlikely experiments.







In July 2021, we celebrated our third consecutive awards season collaboration with architectural industry association ArchiTeam, as they revealed our eye-catching, highly imaginative series of “Hybrid Beasts” for their annual event. The ArchiTeam Awards celebrates small, medium and emerging architecture practices and their contributions to the Australian design community.

In glorious hypercolour, these beasts present as they might on crests: majestic and memorable within an architectural branding landscape so often dominated by monochrome, rectilinear designs.
The organic linework of the illustrations stands in stark contrast with the clean shapes we visualised for awards seasons past. Each fused creature is depicted “having their jab” in a not-so-subtle nod to this highly-charged Covid era.
