Lysaght

12 / July / 2018
Following its successful sponsorship last year, Lysaght will return to sponsor Channel Ten’s unique architectural show, Australia By Design (ABD) in 2018.

Hosted by architect Tim Horton, the Registrar of the NSW Architecture Board, ABD showcases the very best of Australian architecture. Each week, the show features 10 projects from an Australian state or territory to be judged by a panel that includes prominent Australian architects as well as leading suppliers, engineers, and property professionals.

In the final episode, the respective state and territory winners will vie for the top prize of Australia’s architectural statement of the year.

The inaugural 2017 series of ABD was a great success, delivering an average viewership of 143,000 per episode. The Series One winner, the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) by architect Woods Bagot is testament to both the quality of work being built in this country and the talent present in the architectural profession.

Apart from sponsoring the show, Lysaght will also have a presence on the judging panel. This year, Lysaght Product & Brand Manager, Blake Tasker has been chosen for this role.

“As the first series of ABD illustrated, Australia has a wealth of architectural talent that deserves to be recognised and encouraged,” said Tasker. “I am delighted to be part of a project that so successfully does both.”

“As part of the Australian building and design sector for over 150 years now, Lysaght shares the broader industry’s aspirations for excellence and growth. We look forward to seeing what projects the new series brings to the viewing public.”

Lysaght’s product range includes roofing and walling, architectural cladding, structural products and more. All 100% Australian made, these products have been used to help deliver some of the country’s most cutting edge and innovative architectural designs. Combined with the company’s experience and expertise, LYSAGHT® steel products have become industry favourites and are set to feature in many of the projects showcased on Australia by Design.

Australia by Design 2018 premiers on Channel 10 on July 15, with the Series Final airing on August 19. All episodes will also be shown on Channel One in the weeks following their initial broadcasts.
