Jury Citation: 

CSU School of Dentistry, Wagga Wagga campus, Australia by Brewster Hjorth Architects was a modest design with a strong connection to the site. 'A tasteful response to the site' impressed Peter Barrett, Professor at Salford University. The project created a sense of locality and identity by using local materials and 'translating the surrounding typography into the architecture' [Javier Quintana, Dean of IE school of Architecture and Design, Spain]. The circulation and learning spaces were thought to have created a fascinating place to learn.
