The City of Calgary Announces Mayor’s Urban Design Awards Winners

The City of Calgary announced the 2019 Mayor’s Urban Design Award (MUDA) winners at a gala celebration held at the Calgary Central Library on Oct. 24.

Every two years, the city acknowledges the important contributions of designers, architects and artists that help improve its quality of life through art and design.

Ninety-eight submissions were judged in twelve categories that showcase some creative buildings and public spaces in Calgary. In addition, all citizens were encouraged to vote for the “People’s Choice” award, online.

“Recognizing the people behind our vibrant buildings and spaces in our city is important,” said David Down, The City’s Chief Urban Designer. “Well-designed space make people feel welcome, improves safety and accessibility and creates a memorable sense of place.”
