The practice was founded in 2007 by Andrew Burns. In 2011 we were selected unanimously from a field of 154 international entries by a jury chaired by Tadao Ando for the Australia House project in Japan. In that same year, Andrew was awarded the 60th Anniversary Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship to undertake an exchange programme at the Architecture Foundation, London. In 2012 the practice was a finalist in the National Worker’s Memorial competition Canberra, awarded first prize in an invited competition to transform a forgotten pocket at Gibbon’s Rent into London’s newest park and awarded the inaugural Fugitive Structures project at Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation. In 2013 Andrew Burns received the NSW Emerging Architect Prize and a commendation for Crescent House in the Small projects category at the NSW Architecture Awards.
