“On behalf of the OAA, I congratulate all of this year’s winners for their extraordinary work in representing the creativity and innovations of architects across the province,” says John Stephenson, OAA President. “All projects submitted for the Design Excellence Awards this year have showed communities just how much architects can help.”
There were 20 Design Excellence finalists out of more than 140 submissions, and now 10 winners have been announced! They were judged based on creativity, context, sustainability, good design/business, and legacy.
