The jury chose 15 award winners from three categories – Built, Conceptual, and Research & Innovation. Across the spectrum of project types, the jury acknowledged the strong design culture represented in our region and were so impressed with the “high level of design excellence in projects that delight, inspire and enrich their communities all while having a positive impact on the environment.”
