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).

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 2022 National Winner, Daniel Moore, with 2022 WA Winner Matt Delroy-Carr. 

About Daniel Moore

Daniel Moore was awarded the 2022 Emerging Architect Prize in recognition of his unending dedication to advancing the role of architects in society. Daniel has a genuine interest in realising enhanced outcomes for the built environment and has shown a generosity of time, effort and spirit that has led to real action. He has further demonstrated excellence in founding Hearing Architecture an EmAGN podcast that looks to educate the public on the role and importance of the architectural profession. He has been fundamental in leading, curating and MC-ing New Architect Melbourne events since 2014, and has advocated for the emerging architectural profession through his role as EmAGN co-chair, including the establishment of Generation Exchange, an intergenerational mentorship program. On top of all of this, Daniel has pursued more sustainable outcomes through his own practice and patron model, Open Creative Studio.

Daniel's practice of architecture is expansive, reaching architect and non-architects alike. His is a great example of how a genuine passion for design and the built environment can be used to improve outcomes widely, and how a career in architecture can take many forms beyond that of the traditionally accepted practitioner. Daniel's actions and leadership have created a platform for the entire profession to leverage and benefit from, and his legacy will extend beyond his own built work to provide a voice for the architectural community in Australia. 

2022 WA Emerging Architect Prize Winner

Matt is the Director of MDC Architects. His fundamental belief is that architecture should be for everyone, and that good design is central to an improved quality of life.

With a focus on infill housing, accessible to the wider majority, Matt has completed the design and documentation of a number of single and multiple residential projects in Perth. From this experience, Matt was one of the contributors to the State Government’s draft Medium Density Design guidelines, which aim to improve the design quality of medium density housing for Western Australians and address the need for greater housing diversity and choice.

Prior to establishing his own practice, Matt was a collaborative partner of felix. working on a number of research and competition proposals. Of note was Matt’s role as one of the Creative Directors for the felix_Giles_Anderson + Goad team for the Australia Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia 2014, curating the digital content for the exhibit Augmented Australia 1914-2014.
