Entries are now being accepted for the 2015 Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) Awards — and the organization wants to hear from you!
The OAA Awards is an annual ceremony that provides an opportunity for Ontario architects to present their work to the public and highlights the best in architectural design and innovation from across the province.
It’s also an opportunity for members of the public, industry partners and architecture firms to nominate a deserving project.
“We would love to hear from everybody. Whether you’re an architecture enthusiast, the project developer, or an industry partner, anyone can nominate a deserving project on behalf of the architect,” said Bill Birdsell, President of the OAA.
This year the OAA is encouraging individuals to nominate multi-unit residential and mixed-use developments including condominium projects.
“As populations continue to grow and shift back towards 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,” said Birdsell.
“It’s important to recognize the architects that are designing exceptional and diverse expressions of our modern lifestyle.”
