AWARD OF EXCELLENCE 2011 - Rotorua Lakefront Development
We are honoured again to have received another 'Award of Excellence' from the prestigious international body - The American Society of Architectural Illustrators (ASAI).
The image (above), one of only 60 selected from a field of 400 international entries, will be exhibited in Tokyo in September in conjunction with The International Union of Architects (UIA) World Congress of Architecture, where 10,000 delegates are expected to attend.
The image, one in a series of illustrations for Rotorua's proposed Lakefront Development, was commissioned to interpret the plans for the City's 50 year vision by Wraight + Associates Ltd and team Athfield Architects Ltd, Assembly Architects Ltd, McIndoe Urban and Natural Textures.
In reaction to the news of the award, John Hardwick-Smith, Director of Athfield Architects Ltd said...

Working with Stantiall's Studio not only provides a beautiful visualisation of the final product, it also added significantly to the design process because it helps us to test solutions in a clear and realistic way, thus giving direction to the formulation of the preferred design..."
