The New Zealand Institute of Architects handed out their 2017 award that required the winners to assemble it themselves

While the design of the award is simple, McLellan was sure to include a short set of instructions, just in case. Even the box featured special design elements, such as 3mm double-creased edges and a self-locking tab system to ensure the box keeps its shape and protects the prize,
