The AIA Canada Awards program runs annually each fall to recognize best practices, innovative thinking, and design excellence in the work of AIA Canada members and future design professionals—the latter through a student category and $1,000 scholarship.
The 2020 awards cycle invited entries in the categories of Architecture, Interior Architecture, Urban Design, Unbuilt Projects and Student. The jury was chaired by Greg Yager, FAIA, HKIUD, International Representative to the AIA Strategic Council and GW Design Consultant Group, LLC (Shanghai, Los Angeles, Las Vegas) and included two other distinguished architects: Grace Kim, FAIA co-founding Principal of Schemata Workshop in Seattle, WA and Sam Oboh, FAIA, FRAIC, Principal and Vice President at Ensight + Architecture and International Region Representative of the AIA College of Fellows.
