Laureates – Canadian Architect – "2010 Awards of Excellence"
“Canadian Architect announces the winners of the 2010 Awards of Excellence, given each year to architects and architectural graduates for buildings in the design stage. One of only two national award programs devoted exclusively to architecture, the Awards of Excellence have recognized significant building projects in Canada on an annual basis since 1968.
This year’s winners have been selected by a jury consisting of Janna Levitt of Levitt Goodman Architects in Toronto, James Cheng of James KM Cheng Architects in Vancouver, and Andrew King of Cannon Design.
Awards are given for architectural design excellence. Jurors considered response to the program, site, geographical and social context, and evaluated physical organization, structure, materials and environmental features.
Six Awards of Excellence were given to the following firms:
- Patkau Architects Inc. for the Cottages at Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania
- Cannon Design for the Capilano Film Centre in North Vancouver, British Columbia
