RAIC Awards – President’s Award for Media in Architecture

François Cardinal and Lucie Lavigne's multimedia reporting for La Presse brings public attention to architectural concerns.

Building on the Rock

Perched on the stormy edge of the Atlantic, Canada’s easternmost province is a difficult place to build. Where are the young architects that will rise to the challenge?


Award of Excellence: University of British Columbia Aquatic Centre

"This project has an ambitious formal organization that responds in part to the campus quadrangle. From a user point of view, it will be a really interesting space to swim in, with nice relationships both inside and outside."

Award of Excellence: Borden Park Natural Swimming Experience

"This is a very pure and austere project but not unrelentingly so. It is well-controlled and interesting."

Award of Excellence: Arthur Residence

"This project deals with this beautiful challenge of daylighting a home in a suburban neighbourhood while still providing privacy."

Award of Excellence: House on Fox Lake

"A surprising and refreshing house that takes as a starting point a foreign cultural reference, then adapts it to the Canadian landscape and context with a little abstraction."

Award of Excellence: Saint-Jérôme Performance Hall

"A very nice project, particularly in terms of creating a series of layered spaces which will result in an animated public realm."

Award of Excellence: Maison de la Littérature de l’Institut Canadien de Québec

"This project represents a sophisticated and contemporary renovation and addition to an existing heritage property."

Award of Merit: Edmonton Valley Zoo Children’s Precinct

"An imaginatively choreographed project full of invention and surprise."
