When you travel, do you go to cities and visit buildings? Architecture can have a profound effect on the quality of our lives and how we experience life, and not just when we are on holiday. When societies, cities, people and even disaster zones let architecture in amazing things can happen.
Winner of the 2014 Emerging Architect Prize at the NSW Architecture Awards, Shaun Carter’s notable achievements and contributions to the architectural profession are considered an outstanding exemplar of a professional deserving of this prize.
