Call for Edmonton’s Best Urban Designs
July 15, 2011
The City is looking for the best designs in Edmonton, to be featured at its fourth biennial urban design awards. Held every two years, the awards recognize those individuals, organizations, firms and projects that have set a high standard for urban, architectural and landscape design.
“We’re excited to launch the search for Edmonton’s latest and best urban designs,” says Gary Klassen, General Manager of Edmonton’s Sustainable Development department. “Whether we are looking at a design for an entire neighbourhood, a street, a public space or a single building, the City has come to expect high standards in urban architecture and design.”
“The 2011 Edmonton Urban Design Awards will recognize those who are contributing to transforming Edmonton’s urban form,” he adds.
Awards will be given in seven categories including urban design plans, building architecture, civic spaces, small scale urban fragments, community based projects and student projects. The deadline for submissions is September 16, 2011; the winning entries will be unveiled at the awards gala in November 2011.
“We’re looking forward to seeing the newest work of Alberta designers, developers, architects, planners and artists,” says Peter Osborne of the Royal Architectural Institute Canada - Alberta Chapter. “These awards will help bring awareness to the importance of excellence in urban design.”
The Edmonton Urban Design Awards are conducted in partnership with the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) Alberta Chapter.
