« The 2020 Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence competition is now open for entries.
For 53 years, the magazine’s national awards has focused on projects in the design stage. This year’s deadline for submissions is Thursday, September 10, 2020.
Projects must be either (a) in the design stage, (b) scheduled for construction, or (c) under construction but not substantially complete by September 10, 2020. 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, geographic and/or urban context. They will evaluate its physical organization, form, composition, building systems, concept, process, structure, materials, environmental features and/or demonstration of social awareness.
The Awards of Excellence are open to all architects registered in Canada, as well as 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 for the submitted work.
This year’s competition also includes the Canadian Architect Photo Award of Excellence. The award recognizes the best image of a Canadian building, taken in the past two years. The Photo Awards are open to professional and amateur photographers. »
