City architecture firm inaugural recipient of national award

  • Print

Winnipeg’s 5468796 Architecture Inc. is adding another major award to its mantle after being chosen as the inaugural recipient of a new annual award from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada.

The RAIC’s Emerging Architectural Practice Award recognizes the principals of an emerging architectural practice who have consistently produced distinguished architecture.

The institute said the jury which selected 5468796 described it representing the best of Canadian practices.

"It clearly stands out on the Canadian architectural landscape and is undeniably helping to reshape it. Its work is refreshing and important in its combination of typological daring, visual playfulness and intellectual rigour— all the while, thoroughly engaging in the fundamental questions of architecture and urbanism," the jury is quoted as saying in an RAIC news release.

"To have achieved the breadth and quality of work at this stage in their careers — from urban pavilions to low-cost housing to multi-use commercial buildings — is all the more remarkable," it adds.

5468796 was established in 2007 by Johanna Hurme, Sasa Radulovic and Colin Neufeld. The firm will be presented with the award on June 7 at an RAIC dinner and awards gala in Halifax.
