The David Lindner Prize aims
to encourage new research on
architecture in the public realm.
It is awarded to an emerging
architect in honour of the late
David Lindner, and recognises
submissions that generate ideas
for solving real challenges facing
our cities, and which contribute
to the profession as well as the
broader community.
The jury is pleased to announce
that the 2015 David Lindner Prize
has been awarded to Andrew
Daly and Kevin Liu of TYP-
TOP Architecture for their joint
submission entitled ‘Something
Fishy: Sydney’s Fish Markets &
Towards a Model of a Productive
Hybrid City’.
The proposal is seen as a direct
reaction to ongoing trends in
Sydney’s development where
significant historical and
industrial sites are under pressure
due to increasing land values
and prime waterfront locations.
Using the Sydney Fish Markets
as an exemplar, the research
will explore options for design
and development that enables
such industrial and historical
sites to co- exist, by seeking
hybridization and multiple use
over the simplicity and uniformity
which so often pervades large
scale residential developments.
The project will run as an in-
office project at TYP-TOP
Architecture and will also engage
more broadly with university
students via a working design
The proposal will be featured in
both an exhibition and talk later
in the year, and outcomes of this
research (submitted January
2015) will be published in the
NSW Architecture Bulletin.

This prize is named in memory of
the architect David Lindner who
disappeared whilst travelling in Iran in
1997. Initiated by David Lindner’s family
as a means to honour his memory, this
prize aims to encourage emerging
architects to contribute to the growth,
innovation and development of
architectural design and theory.
