Description

In the leadup to the close of online submissions for the SA Architecture Awards, the team at Phillips Pilkington will present the 2017 Colorbond Award for Steel Architecture - the Port Augusta Sterile Insect Production Facility. Join us for a light lunch at the Institute and find out more about the facility, lauded for its ability to use steel to achieve a striking architectural outcome for an intriguing purpose.

The facility breeds sterile flies as part of a bio-security strategy and can be well characterised as a neat and compact complete steel building where nothing is hidden from inspection.

While sterile is not typically a quality rewarded in architecture the Port Augusta Insect Production Facility demonstrates how ‘Sterile’ can be exactly what's needed.

This presentation is brought to you by Colorbond.
