Tapestry Design Prize for Architects

Returning in 2021, the Tapestry Design Prize for Architects (TDPA) is a unique international award inviting architects to design specifically for tapestry.

An initiative of former ATW Board of Directors, Chairman and architect, Peter Williams AM, the prize celebrates the longstanding historical connection between architectural space and tapestry design. Since 2015 the award has fostered exciting new creative dialogues between architects and contemporary weavers. As the only prize of its kind in the world, the TDPA offers architects an unparalleled opportunity to consider the capacity by which tapestries can articulate, transform and enrich public and private space.

Proudly supported by Metal Manufacturers Limited, Architecture Media, Creative Victoria and the City of Port Phillip the TDPA champions creativity, innovation and visionary thinking.
