The AA Prize for Unbuilt Work promotes debate and generates ideas about architecture in Australia by rewarding compelling work in its conceptual stages. Presented by Architecture Australia and ArchitecureAU.com this exhibition showcases the 40 shortlisted entries for this year’s prize.

From big-picture thinking and provocations to schemes with conceptual depth and rigour, the AA Prize for Unbuilt Work shortlist demonstrates the many ways that architects and designers can explore, advocate and address the serious challenges we face in the world today.

The 2022 jury included Julian Anderson, Mel Dodd, Justin Hill, Lee Hillam and Katelin Butler.
