The Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) Awards have issued a call for entries for the 2015 program.
The program honours architectural design and innovation from the province’s new architects, as well as established firms. For the 2015 program, the emphasis is on the importance of multi-residential, mixed-use projects.
“As populations continue to grow and shift back toward urban centres, architects will need to present creative residential structures that promote density and accommodate mixed-uses while engaging within their given context and environment,” OAA president Bill Birdsell explained.
Winners will be honoured at the Celebration of Excellence Awards Ceremony taking place as part of the 2015 OAA Annual Conference in Hamilton from May 6 to 8, 2015. Award categories include:
● Best Emerging Practice;
● Design Excellence;
● Lieutenant Governor’s Award;
● Landmark Designation;
● Lifetime Design Achievement; and
● People’s Choice.
The deadline for submissions is January 26 and entries can be provided by the public, industry members, and architecture firms on behalf of architects. For more information, visit www.oaa.on.ca.
