Sinclair to receive RAIC Gold Medal

OTTAWA — The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) has announced Justice Murray Sinclair will be the recipient of the 2024 RAIC Gold Medal.

The award is the highest honour given for a “significant and lasting contribution to Canadian architecture, recognizing excellence in design, research and education, as well as expertise, public presence, sustainability, social justice and commitment to future architects.”

Sinclair was the chair of Canada’s Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission. This work has had a fundamental impact on the Canadian architectural landscape, both presently and in the future, stated an RAIC release.

“The RAIC acknowledges the profound connection of Canada’s colonial history and its impact on First Nations,” stated RAIC president Jason Robbins. “To promote reconciliation, the RAIC instituted the Indigenous Task Force in 2016 and the Truth AND Reconciliation Task Force in 2020.

“Honouring Murray Sinclair with the 2024 RAIC Gold Medal reflects the profession’s recognition of architecture’s transformative power in promoting reconciliation, social justice and a more inclusive built environment.”
