Jury Announced to Judge Inaugural Architecture and Urban Design Awards|
| || ||
The City has chosen architects Janna Levitt of Toronto and Dan Hanganu from
Montreal, landscape architect Bruce Corban of Toronto and heritage architect
William Greer of Toronto as jurists to perform the challenging task of choosing
the winners of Toronto's inaugural Architecture and Urban Design Awards.
Janna Levitt is a partner at Levitt Goodman Architects, the 1999 recipients of
the Governor General's Medal of Excellence in Architecture. Dan Hanganu has won
over forty awards for his work in Switzerland, Morocco, Romania and Canada.
William Greer's fifty-year career has ranged from heritage consultant and
architect in private practice to Chief Architect of the Toronto Historical
Board. Bruce Corban, of Corban Goode, has been the landscape architect on such
notable projects as the University of Toronto Open Space Master Plan and St.
George Street Revitalization Project
The Architecture and Urban Design Awards are open to any member of the public
to nominate any building within the city of Toronto. The jury will review
presentation panels and one-page descriptions of the buildings before doing
actual site visits. The pictures and descriptions do not identify who designed
or built what is illustrated in the submission.
Bringing together the award programs of the former North York, Etobicoke,
Scarborough and Toronto, the annual Awards will honour excellence in design in
four categories: Element or Building; Small Place; Large Place or Streets; and
Theoretical or Demolished Projects. Each category will have an urban and a
suburban sub-category. The winners will be announced at a gala reception at
City Hall on September 12, 2000.
