2007 B.C. Architecture Awards

Our 3rd post on 2007 North-West architectural awards features British Columbia and its crown jewel of a city Vancouver. Here at BUILD we love Vancouver; it’s modern, sophisticated and calm. You can find more modern hot spots on The Modern List Vancouver. Thanks to Gaile Guevara who knows the city well, she gave us some great links and authors a sharp blog. The Architectural Institute of British Columbia held it’s ceremony on April 28th and awarded the following projects.

So the AIBC has an additional award, the Innovation Award which recognizes achievements that are not strictly ‘architectural’ but have a direct bearing on the future of architecture. Interestingly no Innovation Awards were given this year. We think of Vancouver as a very innovative city, a role model for Seattle – and not just because they have light-rail. So what’s going on up there? If Vancouver is no longer innovative what does that make Seattle?
