2104 Awards of Excellence: List of Entrants


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."
