The 2017 design trophy handed out by the New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA) this year boasts an unusual feature—it must be assembled by the recipient, as it is presented as a flat-pack product.

The trophy, designed by Jamie McLellan, is packaged in a box that includes the two halves of the trophy, plus the required fasteners, tools and instructions for it all to be put together. As the flat-pack component of the design is a key part of the entire theme, the box features just as many careful design details as the award itself.

The interactive keepsake serves as a fun way to reward those in the field of architecture who are passionate about creating something from the ground up.
