Tapestry design prize for architects 2018: prize winners announcement and exhibition of finalists

John Ridley AM, Chairman and Antonia Syme, Director of the Australian Tapestry Workshop, invite you to join our guest of honour MONA Founder, David Walsh AO, who will announce the winners of the Tapestry Design Prize for Architects 2018 and officially open the exhibition of the finalists.

The Tapestry Design Prize for Architects 2018 invites architects to design a tapestry for Étienne-Louis Boullée’s mooted building that inspired the Pharos Wing, MONA, Tasmania, Australia.

Established in 2015 the Tapestry Design Prize for Architects (TDPA) challenges architects to explore the possibilities of tapestry and architecture through the invitation to create a tapestry design for a hypothetical site. The TDPA 2018 is a partnership between the Australian Tapestry Workshop, the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and  Architecture Media. The TDPA is the only international competition for architects to design specifically for tapestry.
