In 2002, the influential Wallpaper magazine cited Australian architect Sean Godsell as one of the ten people destined to “change the way we live.”
In 2003, he was cited by the President of the American Institute of Architects for his work for the homeless.
The next year, his Future Shack prototype was exhibited in the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum of the New York Smithsonian Institute for six months.
Time magazine named the architect in the “Who’s Who – The New Contemporaries” section of its 2005 style and design supplement.
He was the only Australian and only architect in the group, which included seven eminent designers.
