Awarding Excellence in Wood Architecture and Design

2017 Wood Design & Building Award Winners Announced

Ottawa, ON, January 17, 2018 – Wood Design & Building magazine is pleased to announce the award recipients for the prestigious 2017 Wood Design Awards program. Winning projects were selected by an esteemed architectural jury consisting of:

• Alan Organschi, Principal at Gray Organschi Architecture
• Betsy Williamson, Principal at Williamson Williamson
• Richard Bonnin, Design Principal, HGA Architects and Engineers

The Canadian Wood Council, as well as this year’s sponsors, Sustainable Forestry Initiative, Western Red Cedar, and Sansin, also granted special awards. Unique to this year’s program, two special jury awards were selected, one for technical innovation and one for public art education.

Submissions to this year’s awards program were thoughtfully designed and highlight wood’s structural, aesthetic and functional qualities. The Wood Design Awards program is an opportunity to showcase exceptional wood buildings and serves to inspire designers to push the boundaries of what they think is possible for wood in construction.

“The Wood Design & Building Awards program has been in existence for over 30 years,” explains Etienne Lalonde, Vice-President of Market Development for the Canadian Wood Council. “We’ve been continually impressed with the quality of submissions each year, and it’s a testament to the sophistication of wood products, due to improvements in technology and advancements in applications.”

Wood Design & Building magazine, in partnership with the Canadian Wood Council, extends its appreciation to all participants of the 2017 awards program, and congratulates the award recipients.
