RAIC and the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia offer special Vancouver Urban Design Award

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada with support from the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia is pleased to announce a special Vancouver Award as part of this year’s 2006 National Urban Design Awards.

“We are especially pleased with this award because it ties in so nicely with our joint RAIC – Architectural Institute of British Columbia annual Conference and Festival of Architecture taking place in Vancouver this year June 14-17,” said RAIC President Yves Gosselin, FIRAC.

Vancouver projects will be considered separately for the Vancouver Award and then jointly with other projects at the national level.

The winners of the national awards will be unveiled Saturday night at a special presentation.

The award is not restricted to architects and is open to other professionals and community groups. The deadline for entries is 4:00 pm on April 13, 2006. Details are available at www.raic.org/raic/honours_and_awards/awards/urban-submission_e.htm.
