THE South Australian Architecture Awards, held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre last night, saw new medical building SAHMRI by Woods Bagot taking a run of awards for its iconic design.

The jury described it as a "joyful landmark that contributes so strongly to Adelaide's skyline."

"The project operates as a catalyst on multiple levels – a catalyst for the urban regeneration of the precinct; a catalyst and new exemplar for the city; and a catalyst for the state, evidencing step change in attitudes to both design and research," they said.

A number of other awards were given on the night. Projects that received an award will progress to the 2014 National Architecture Awards to be held in Darwin on the 6th of November.

See below for the full list of awards and a photo gallery of the projects.
