A total of 5,098,711 aliens were destroyed in 2018, in more than 127,000 games of ‘Space Raiders’. These games were not played sitting in front of a computer screen – they were instead played out using an oversized joystick, situated at the intersection of two busy streets, on a 5m-wide screen mounted to the side of a building. Architectural designer Pippin Wright-Stow of F3 Design was one of the street arcade’s masterminds.
Judging of the 2019 ADNZ Resene Architectural Design Awards will begin in June 2019. For many of the ADNZ members who enter, it is an opportunity to showcase their incredible talent to New Zealand, while also receiving recognition from peers and industry. With entries to the awards closing on Thursday 9 May, Defign spoke to the 2019 judging panel to gain insight into their judging process and what they consider an award-winning design.
