Finalists revealed: 2023 Tapestry Design Prize for Architects


The Australian Tapestry Workshop has revealed the finalists of the 2023 Tapestry Design Prize for Architects.

The prize invites architects from around the world to design a tapestry for a hypothetical site, which this year is the Bundanon Art Museum by Kerstin Thompson Architects.

The finalists are:

Bundanon Tapestry – Heliotope

Traces – Malin Parkegren

For the first time, the Australian Tapestry Workshop will be making a large-format sample of each of the finalists’ designs, in order to showcase the interpretive and technical skills of the weavers. The first five design began production in July 2023.

Entries are judged by a panel comprising Jefa Greenaway (jury chair and founding director of Greenaway Architects), Kerstin Thompson (principal and design director of Kerstin Thompson Architects), Justin Hill (co-founder of Kerry Hill Architects and past TDPA winner), Christina Na-Heon Cho (director of Cox Architecture), Adrian Iredale (founding partner of Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects), Camila Block (director of Durbach Block Jaggers), and José da Silva (director of UNSW Galleries).

An exhibition of the finalists’ designs will be on show at the Australian Tapestry Workshop from 22 August to 28 September.

The winning architect/design team will be awarded a $10,000 cash prize, and a People’s Choice winner will receive $1,000. Voting for the People’s Choice award opens on the TDPA website on 3 August. The winners will be announced on 6 September.
