The Emerging Architect Prize (EAP) has been developed to recognise an individual emerging architect or architectural collaboration’s contribution to architectural practice, education, design excellence and community involvement, which advances the profession’s role within the public arena. The Emerging Architect Prize is an initiative of the Australian Institute of Architects Emerging Architect and Graduate Network (EmAGN), and proudly supported by Bluescope.

The National Emerging Architect Prize Winner travels to every state and territory, presenting a ‘show and tell’ of their works, experiences and architecture. Join us as this year as we hear from the 2023 National Prize recipient, Ben Peake.

About Ben Peake

As Design Director of Carter Williamson Architects, Ben's impact on the practice has been profound. He has been instrumental in steering award-winning projects, nurturing young architects, and advocating for gender and diversity equity.

Ben's contributions aren't limited to his profession; he has actively shared his knowledge as a tutor and received recognition like the Byera Hadley Traveling Scholarship and Dulux Study Tour. Notably, he led the SaveOurSirius movement, successfully preserving a significant building against development forces in NSW. The resulting publication, "Sirius," stands as a testament to his achievements.

Ben's leadership style encompasses design excellence alongside a profound sense of social responsibility, demonstrating architectural practice as citizenship. He has not only shaped projects but also embraced the ethical dimensions of architecture.
