2011 Vision Award Winners
Viridian would like to congratulate the winners of the 2011 Vision Awards, announced on Friday 15 April at the 2011 National Architecture Conference in Melbourne. Now in their third year, the Vision Awards are designed to celebrate and promote energy efficient and innovative use of glass in Australian architecture. Viridian Marketing Manager Lachlan Austin presented the awards and said the interest from the industry had been overwhelming. “Glass has long been used for visual effect in residential and commercial projects, but now with the growing range of high-performance glass products available it has also evolved to become a critical component in helping buildings meet increased energy regulations,” he said.
