« 2011 Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence announced
The 2011 Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence have been announced. The awards program is 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.
Project submissions will be accepted after August 11, 2011, and must be received by 5:00pm EST on Thursday, September 15, 2011.
Projects must be in the design stage, scheduled for construction or under construction but not substantially complete by September 15, 2011. 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.
The jury has been finalized for this fall, and consists of Walter Francl, Principal of Walter Francl Architecture Inc. in Vancouver; Diarmuid Nash, Partner in Moriyama & Teshima Architects in Toronto; and Peter Sampson, Principal of Peter Sampson Architecture Studio in Winnipeg. »
