Three buildings in British Columbia have earned national recognition with the Governor General’s Medals in Architecture.
Awarded by the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and the Canada Council for the Arts, the medals recognize recent outstanding work by Canadian architects, and aim to increase public awareness about architecture and its role in Canadian society. Twelve buildings across the country were recognized.
The visionary Canadian architects "have designed spaces where communities are forged, memories are enshrined and identity is created in built form. Few architects are able to realize their philosophies so fully in practice and in such diversity of project type and geography," states the award website.
B.C.'s three winners are:
- North Vancouver City Hall, North Vancouver; designed by MGA | Michael Green Architecture
- Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Centre for Drug Research and Development at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver; designed by Saucier + Perrotte Architectes/Hughes Condon Marler Architects
- Tula House, Quadra Island; designed by Patkau Architects Inc.
