DWA Director David Weir has been presented with the Australian Institute of Architects WA Chapter Emerging Architect Prize for 2016.

The prize was presented by last year’s winner, Kylie Schoonens of Fratelle Group at the annual AIA Awards Night on Friday evening at Crown Perth, and recognises an individual emerging architect or emerging architectural collaboration’s contribution to architectural practice, education, design excellence and community involvement, which advances the profession’s role within the public arena.

David is now in the running for the national Emerging Architect Prize, to be awarded at the National Conference in early 2017.
