– designed or executed buildings of high merit;
– produced work of great distinction resulting in the advancement of architecture, or

They have received 29 state and national awards from the AIA for housing, public, educational, recycling, civic and commercial projects, mostly in Australia.

Architectus : AIA Gold Medal Winner 2010
Australian Institute of Architects Gold Medal Winners 2010 Background
Kerry and Lindsay Clare – working partners for 35 years – became the first husband-and-wife team to win the award.
In addition to major projects, such as Queensland’s Gallery of Modern Art, they were also recognised for designing low-impact, sustainable homes decades before it became compulsory.The couple’s interest in sustainability dates back to their training with Gabriel Poole, who won the AIA Gold Medal in 1998. He taught them to always look for passive solutions to heat and ventilate buildings.
Kerry Clare is a member of the City of Sydney’s design advisory panel and has passed comment on the major Barangaroo Waterfront proposals.
