City of Adelaide: A City of Great Buildings
What is this?
Throughout May 2013, City of Adelaide asked Adelaide residents, workers, students and visitors to nominate and vote for their favourite buildings in the CBD, North Adelaide or the Park Lands.
We received great feedback from the public and had an overwhelming response of 192 buildings submitted and 5372 votes cast.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit or vote!
Visit the Public Submissions tab in our Gallery to see all of the buildings submitted.
The Great Buildings Final List
The buildings submitted throughout May 2013 along with the number of votes each building received were presented to the City of Great Buildings Panel in June-July 2013.
This panel of experts, appointed by City of Adelaide, reviewed and shortlisted the buildings received to create a 'final list'.
This all-encompassing list highlights the City of Adelaide’s architecture and heritage and contains:
- buildings from all parts of the City of Adelaide (North Adelaide, CBD, South East, South West and the Park Lands)
- a range of building eras to reflect the evolution of the City of Adelaide
- a range of building types to reflect the diversity of built form in the City of Adelaide
- buildings unique to the City of Adelaide, South Australia and Australia
Visit the Great Buildings Final List tab in our Gallery to see, explore and discover Adelaide's beautiful buildings as submitted and voted by its people.
Trails that will guide people to see, explore and discover Adelaide’s beautiful buildings will be developed for About Time: South Australia’s History Festival in May 2014 so keep your eyes peeled.
