2012 AZ Awards winners

Toronto, Canada

Azure Magazine


Toronto, Canada, 2012-06-07 -

Top players of the international architectural and design community, from as far away as Mexico and India, gathered at the Thompson Hotel last night as AZURE revealed the winners of its second annual AZ Awards.


These awards are one of a kind: the only international, multi-disciplinary design competition in Canada. Representing a global snapshot of the world of architecture and design, submissions were open to designers, architects, firms and manufacturers of all disciplines, as well as students in these fields.

The prestigious international jury included architect Imola Bérczi of UNStudio (Amsterdam), designer Jeffrey Bernett of Consultants for Design Strategy (New York), interior designer Elaine Cecconi of Cecconi Simone (Toronto), landscape designer Jennifer Guthrie of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol (Seattle), architect Brigitte Shim of Shim-Sutcliffe Architects (Toronto) and Mike Keilhauer of Keilhauer (Toronto). In March, the expert panel conferred at Toronto’s Hôtel Le Germain, narrowing the field from an impressive 621 entries to a shortlist of 60 finalists. From there, they selected the 13 outstanding winners.

"The overall calibre of entries to the AZ Awards was especially high this year," says Nelda Rodger, editor of AZURE, "resulting in more finalists whose work met our jury’s criteria for excellence. With submissions coming from 30 countries, this competition is recognizing the best architecture and design from around the world."

During the month of April, the public was also given the chance to vote online for their favourites as the People’s Choice.
