City of Toronto launches 2005 Architecture and Urban Design Awards
The City of Toronto has officially launched AUDA 2005 - this year's
Architecture and Urban Design Awards competition. Mayor David Miller will host
the awards ceremony at an inaugural AUDA Gala on May 16th in the Art Gallery of
Ontario. The deadline for submissions is 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1.

Urban design and architectural excellence play a vital role in enhancing the
quality of life in Toronto. Held every other year, AUDA helps promote and
recognize public and private awareness of that role. AUDA 2005 is the 4th
awards competition since the City amalgamated in 1998.

Nominations will be accepted in six categories and will be judged by an
independent jury that includes:

  • John Bentley Mays
    Architecture Critic: Toronto Globe & Mail

  • Claude Cormier
    Landscape Architect: Claude Cormier Architectes Paysagistes Inc., Montreal

  • Glen Murray
    Urban Public Policy Consultant: The Murray Group
    Former Mayor of Winnipeg

  • Brigitte Shim
    Professor of Architecture, University of Toronto
    Partner: Shim-Sutcliffe Architects, Inc.

    The award categories are: Buildings in Context; Elements; Small Open Spaces;
    Large Places or Neighbourhood Designs; Visions and Master Plans; and Student

    This year's awards program and gala are being organized by the City of Toronto
    in conjunction with the Toronto Society of Architects, the Ontario Association
    of Architects, the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects and the Toronto
    Board of Trade. The City also has been working with the Royal Architectural
    Institute of Canada to establish National Urban Design Awards, and looks
    forward to participating in this new program in 2006.

    Official AUDA entry forms are available at Access Toronto public information
    counters in City Hall and each civic centre, at UDS Customer Service counters
    across the city and on the City of Toronto's Web site at:
