Excerpt from announcement:
« Jury announced for 2013 Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence
The 2013 Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence is an annual awards program open to all architects registered in Canada and to Canadian architectural graduates for buildings designed in Canada and abroad. Foreign architects are permitted to submit, provided they have partnered with a Canadian-registered architect.
The jury for this year’s awards has been finalized: Karen Marler, principal at Hughes Condon Marler Architects in Vancouver; Marianne McKenna, founding partner at Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects in Toronto; and Marc Simmons, partner at FRONT INC in New York, and Thomas W. Ventulett III Chair in Architectural Design at Georgia Institute of Technology School of Architecture.
Award submissions must be received by 5:00pm EST on Thursday, September 12, 2013.
Projects must be in the design stage, scheduled for construction or under construction but not substantially complete by September 12, 2013. All projects must be commissioned by a client with the intention to build the submitted proposal. All building types and concisely presented urban design schemes are eligible.
Awards are given for architectural design excellence. Jurors will consider the scheme’s response to the client’s program, site, and geographic and social context. They will evaluate its physical organization, form, structure, materials and environmental features. »
