City Hall displays architecture and urban design submissions
All submission panels, with photographs and text, for Toronto’s Architecture
and Urban Design Awards will be on display May 24-29 in the Rotunda of City
Hall, 100 Queen Street West.

Architects, landscape architects, urban designers and artists submitted a total
of 110 projects for consideration in the following categories:

1. Elements - stand-alone objects, landscape elements or small-scale pieces of
buildings which contribute significantly to the quality of the public realm;
they provide a memorable image, reinforce the human scale and enhance the
character of the surrounding area

2. Buildings in context - individual building, or compositions of buildings,
which achieve urban design excellence through their relationship to the public
realm, its massing, detailing and pedestrian amenity, and their contribution to
quality of place

3. Small open spaces - generally related to and defined by adjacent buildings
or natural/manmade elements ; they provide an extension to the public realm in
an exemplary way

4. Large places or neighbourhood designs - design plans for new or renovated
large-scale areas of the city

5. Visions and master plans - unexecuted visions for the city, studies and
master plans of high inspirational value with the potential for significant
impact on Toronto's development

6. Student projects - theoretical and studio projects relating to Toronto, by
students at universities with degree programs in architecture, landscape
architecture and design.

A total of 15 winning projects received awards of excellence or honourable
mention at a ceremony on May 16. Displays showing these projects will tour
Toronto’s civic centres in June.
