OTTAWA – The awards ceremony for the 2022 recipients of the Governor General’s Medals in Architecture and the recipient for the Governor General’s Medal in Landscape Architecture will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 24 at Rideau Hall in Ottawa.
Rideau Hall will celebrate the architects behind some of Canada’s best architecture in 2022 during the event and will honour a lifetime of achievement in landscape architecture.
On Monday, Jan. 23, the public is invited to attend a free, in-person evening of presentations at the Museum of History, from 6 to 8 p.m. where the 13 award recipients will share stories about their projects, followed by a Q&A period.
The projects represent the best of Canada’s excellence in design today and include a stormwater facility, a school, pavilions, a theatre, educational centres and residential spaces.
The Governor General’s Medals in Architecture, organized by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, recognize and celebrate outstanding design in recently completed built projects by Canadian architects.
The competition continues a tradition initiated by the Massey Medals in 1950, providing an important source of understanding of the nature of Canadian architecture and the regional, cultural and historic forces expressed in the built environment.
