The Toronto Urban Design Awards, held by the City of Toronto every second year, recognize achievements in urban design, architecture and landscape architecture. The call for 2019 submissions is now open. Designers, developers, project owners, community groups, design students and others are invited to enter eligible projects. The deadline for submissions is noon on April 29.
Submission categories include elements, private buildings in context, public buildings in context, small open spaces, large places or neighbourhood designs, visions and master plans, and student projects. Design students are also encouraged to enter theoretical or studio projects relating to Toronto.
The city will hold an awards ceremony on September 10 to celebrate all entries and announce the winners. The 2019 ceremony is a ticketed event that will bring together, in recognition and celebration, urban designers, architects, landscape architects, planners, land developers, builders, urban policy makers, design professionals, artists, design students and interested community members. The ceremony will include displays of all submissions, an awards presentation and a catered reception.
“As a growing city, Toronto relies on thoughtful design to ensure that it not only remains functional and attractive, but is a place with celebrated architecture and accessible, well-integrated public spaces. We’re proud to recognize those who contribute to great design and development in this city,” said Mayor John Tory.
