Established in 1956, the Sisalation Prize is the longest-standing award offered by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects. In 2001, the Prize was re-structured to establish the TAKE journals as an ongoing series exploring issues of contemporary concern to the profession of architecture.
The TAKE series bridges topical issues in architectural practice and academia and adds to the growing body of knowledge that will become a permanent architectural reference library.
With contributions from over 20 prominent architects, writers and thinkers, TAKE 6: Beyond Beige: Improving architecture for older people and people with disabilities explores purpose-built environments, and calls on architects to engage with issues of age and disability in innovative and creative ways.
