Winners of Wood Design & Building Awards 2018

Ottawa, ON, January 17th, 2019 – Wood Design & Building magazine announced the award recipients for the prestigious 2018 Wood Design & Building Awards program. A revered architectural jury hand-selected the winning projects at the end of December 2018. The jury consisted of:

Recognizing Excellence in Wood Architecture

The Canadian Wood Council, as well as program sponsors, Sustainable Forestry Initiative, Western Red Cedar, and Sansin also granted awards. Two special jury awards were selected for installation projects under the title of Ephemeral Architecture.

Submissions to the awards program were thoughtful in design and highlighted wood’s aesthetic and structurally diverse capabilities. The Wood Design & Building Awards program is a unique opportunity to recognize exceptional wood buildings and celebrate design teams that continually challenge the possibilities for wood in construction.

“The longevity of our prestigious Wood Design & Building Awards program is a testament to the innovation that exists for the wood products industry,” explained Etienne Lalonde, Vice-President of Market Development for the Canadian Wood Council. “The quality of submissions received is paramount and a true reflection of the sophistication and refinement that is forever evolving for the wood industry.”

The Wood Design & Building magazine, in partnership with the Canadian Wood Council, extends its appreciation to all participants of the 2018 awards program. A special thank you to our sponsors for their ongoing support.
