Professional Prix de Rome awarded to PUBLIC Architecture + Communication

Excerpt of article:

« The Canada Council’s Professional Prix de Rome in Architecture has been awarded to Vancouver-based firm PUBLIC Architecture + Communication. The $50,000 prize recognizes outstanding achievement in Canadian architecture. It is awarded annually to a young architect or architectural firm to develop their skills and creative practice as well as work with specialists worldwide. The award will support the firm’s research mission to improve Vancouver’s public realm.

“Vancouver is often touted as a poster child of urbanity, yet when we travel to the great cities of the world and then return home, we question why Vancouver’s public spaces aren’t better,” said Brian Wakelin, Principal, PUBLIC. “We want the areas we collectively experience in our city to be more widely used, more vibrant, more fun, and more poetic. We’re thrilled that our win will enable us to contribute to that and we thank the Canada Council for the Arts for this incredible opportunity.”
