WODONGA’S new railway station and the Sandy Creek Bridge across Lake Hume are in line for major architectural prizes.
The landmarks are among four North East projects in contention for the 2013 Victorian Architecture Awards administered by the Australian Institute of Architects.
The other two are student accommodation built at Wodonga’s La Trobe University campus and alterations and additions to Yackandandah Primary School.
The railway station, which was designed by the large firm GHD, has been nominated in the small project category.
Its rivals include a mausoleum at Geelong, beach house at Mornington and a seaside kiosk at Torquay.
The Sandy Creek bridge, which was designed by Collingwood firm ClarkeHopkinsClarke, is a nominee in the urban design category.
The $1.35 million span, which follows the route of a former railway bridge across the lake, was opened in October last year.
Some of its fellow finalists are the redeveloped Hamer Hall in Melbourne and the expansion of the Mahogany Room at Crown casino.
The university accommodation involves a pair of two-storey buildings, which provide 28 beds for students, and is a finalist in the residential multiple category.
The $4 million work at Yackandandah Primary, designed by Melbourne’s Now Architecture, involved establishing a new administration area and an art room connecting to a fresh northern wing that includes classrooms and a canteen.
It is a finalist in the public architecture section, against the National Tennis Centre.
The winners will be announced on June 21, at a ceremony in Melbourne.
