Summary This paper will seek to answer; "How do architects in Victoria incorporate Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) criteria into the design process?" For the purpose of this paper, "Ecologically Sustainable Development" is defined in line with the judging criteria used by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects for the 'Sustainable Architecture Award'. The RAIA states that (Maddison, 2003 p.7), "the goal of sustainable architecture is to achieve development that improves the total quality of life, in a way that maintains the processes on which life depends. The project assessment covers ecologically sustainable development and energy efficient design:' By researching exemplary building projects that have been awarded a Victorian Sustainable Architecture Award, this paper will enlighten a design methodology for the pursuit of excellence in ecologically sustainable development. Key elements in the design process will be determined by comparing and analysing the processes of different architectural practices. This will be achieved through the study of published literature on the award winning designs, qualitative analysis of interviews with the architects who designed the selected projects and quantitative analysis of questionnaires completed by the architects.
