39th Annual Wood Design & Building Awards Program Announces Winners
Design in Canadian Wood announced the winners for the 39th annual Wood Design & Building Awards Program The awards program honors and supports distinguished architects worldwide who excel in wood design and construction. This year, the nominations program solicited 181 nominations from 25 different countries, and 24 winning projects were chosen from the most prestigious submissions pool.
This year, the jurors for the awards were Brian Court, Partner at The Miller Hull Company; Susan Fitzgerald, Design Principal at FBM; and Stephen Langevin, Principal at STGM.
The jurors agreed that the winning projects demonstrate the expert applications of wood – from thermal, acoustic enhancement of concert halls to the adaptive transformation of the re-use of an old industrial building into a beautiful multi-functional space. The structures were all incredibly rich and elaborate.
