2011 AZ Awards winners

Toronto, Canada

Azure Magazine

AZURE Magazine's first ever AZ AWARDS raises the design bar with the help of an international jury.


Toronto, Canada, 2011-06-22 - On June 16, the top players in Canada’s architectural and design community gathered at Harbourfront Centre as AZURE revealed the winners of its first annual AZ AWARDS. Following the announcement, guests were invited into the gallery to preview the spectacular display of winning projects; an exhibition produced by AZURE and presented by Harbourfront that is open to the public until September 25.

These awards are the first of their kind: the only international, multi-disciplinary design competition in Canada. Representing a global snapshot of the world of design, submissions were open to designers, architects and firms of all disciplines, as well as students in these fields. To be eligible, designs and concepts had to be realized by 2010.

The high-calibre international jury included landscape architect Claude Cormier of Claude Cormier Landscape Architects (Montreal), architect Craig Dykers of Snøhetta (Oslo/New York), designer and consultant Patty Johnson of Patty Johnson Design (Toronto), architect and product designer Eero Koivisto of Claesson Koivisto Rune (Stockholm) and interior designer Glenn Pushelberg of Yabu Pushelberg (Toronto/New York). In March, the expert panel conferred at Toronto’s Hotel Le Germain, narrowing the field from an impressive 600 entries arriving from 25 countries to a shortlist of 52 finalists. From there, they selected the 14 outstanding winners, with the recipient of the Student A+ Award receiving a prize of $2,500.

“The AZ AWARDS shows the high calibre of Canadian design by pitting it against the best in the world,” said Nelda Rodger, editor-in-chief of AZURE. “This competition is the next step in AZURE’s mission to provide our readers with visionary and engaging coverage of the international contemporary design scene.”

During the month of April, the public was also given the chance to vote online for their favourite designs in the People’s Choice Awards. Winners are noted below.

For more information about the AZ AWARDS winners, pick up AZURE's Awards Annual, on newsstands June 27, 2011 or visit awards.azuremagazine.com.
