The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), the Canadian Institute of Planners, and the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects have announced the recipients of the 2010 National Urban Design Awards.
KPMB Architects, Smith Carter Architects & Engineers, and Transsolar Klima Engineering have been awarded the National Urban Design Award for Urban Architecture for Manitoba Hydro Place. KPMB Architects has been awarded the Certificate of Merit for Urban Architecture for the Royal Conservatory.
Manitoba Hydro Place“Manitoba Hydro Place represents impeccable sustainability credentials in a beautifully sculpted building. The sustainability seems to be well integrated into the design of the buildings. We see this project as an incentive to revitalize the downtown, and to encourage Manitoba Hydro employees to take public transit.”
The Royal Conservatory“The jury particularly appreciates the look of the building and how it relates to the buildings on all sides – an excellent example of how you can retain a building and add to the programme. This design is deferential to the urban context, ‘doing it right’ on all sides without resorting to overblown form-making.”
