Greater Shepparton City Council has announced Denton Corker Marshall as the winner of the new Shepparton Art Museum architectural competition. The architectural competition for a new SAM and building jury recommendation was endorsed at the Ordinary Council Meeting on Tuesday 18 April. The seven-member expert jury report noted that the Denton Corker Marshall proposal was unanimously selected as the winning proposal for the Stage 2 Concept Design Competition after assessment of the five design concepts against the agreed criteria. According to the report, the Denton Corker Marshall proposal stood out because it combined a powerful and relevant conceptual idea – well-resolved and compelling in its sculptural expression and detail – with a highly adaptable, functional, safe and efficient solution. More information
