PANZ congratulates Pattersons and Inside Out Productions: Frankfurt Pavilion wins major awards
In a glittering ceremony in the very fashionable Ponsonby Central last night, awards were given for the best architectural designs at the 2013 Interior Awards.
The Guest of Honour Pavilion at last year’s Frankfurt Book Fair won the Installation category and then picked up the Supreme Winner award, for which the winners received wine from sponsors Mt Difficulty, a trophy, and a briefcase containing $6,000 in cash. “It looked like we had crashed the casino,” said PANZ President Kevin Chapman.
The Pavilion was a collaboration between Pattersons Associates and Inside Out Productions and was the most successful Pavilion in the history of Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
Kevin Chapman commented that “Andrew Patterson, Jo Aitken, Mike Mizrahi and their teams did tremendous work on behalf of New Zealand with the Pavilion. We join their professional colleagues in congratulating them all. What was marked at the awards was the admiration of architects and designers for our Pavilion.”
