The Ashton Raggatt McDougal architects have been awarded the 2009 Victorian Architecture Medal for architectural design after their most recent masterpieces, the Melbourne Recital Center and the Melbourne Theater Company. The buildings are absolutely stunning and perfectly dramatic in composition! Their exteriors are an unusual mix of modern geometric design with a reference to 1950's pop architecture. The interiors are seen as a distinct mix of modern and classic design with a twist of space age imagery. Proof that architecture is one of the most admirable art forms to be found.
