National Capital Authority

The National Capital Authority selected TERROIR (in association with Steensen Varming) as architects for the Parliamentary Zone as the result of a Quality Based Assessment procurement process. 

During the project, TERROIR were fortunate to work with a cross-section of NCA staff including Annabelle Pegrum (Chief Executive of the Authority), Andrew Smith, Harriet Spring and Rob Tindall.

The functions of the NCA provide an enduring framework to secure the planning and development of Canberra as the capital; to accommodate the Seat of Government and associated national and cultural requirements; to provide national public places for all Australians to visit and enjoy; to enhance the unique character and symbolic meaning of the capital; and to develop appreciation of the capital as a reflection of our democracy and national life.
