The RAIC Foundation is pleased to present its first College of Fellows Centennial Fund for interns and intern architects to Team Canada, the 13 young intern and intern architect members of the Migrating Landscapes team.
The Migrating Landscapes team members were chosen by a jury from regional exhibitions and the 13 young interns and intern architects are now part of Canada’s official entry at the 2012 Venice Biennale in Architecture (August 29-November 25, 2012).
The jury noted: “We were impressed with the achievements of each of the 13 individuals forming Team Canada, who have already made significant contributions to the profession, which have been recognized by various awards, publications and exhibitions of their work. Some of them are also involved in teaching and lecturing.”
Migrating Landscapes is a nation-wide competition and series of seven regional exhibitions held to explore how Canadian architects and designers aged 45 and under have been inuenced by migration. The 13 members of Team Canada submitted as a group to the Centennial Fund for interns and intern architects.
The award of $5,000 will be presented at the Foundation Luncheon on June 14th during the 2012 Architecture Canada | RAIC – NLAA Festival of Architecture taking place from June 13-16, 2012 at the Delta St. John’s Hotel and Conference Centre.
The College of Fellows Centennial Fund for interns or intern architects was created with donations received from members of the College of Fellows and members of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada to support a deserving intern or intern architect or group of interns/intern architects wishing to promote the value and image of the profession.
