Manitoba firms went home with nine of 17 Prairie Design Awards in an event at the Winnipeg Art Gallery this week.
Cibinel Architecture Ltd. who collaborated with Maltzan Architecture Inc. of Los Angeles, won the award of excellence for recent work for Qaumajuq – Inuit Art Centre, the new Inuit gallery adjacent to the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
Jon Trenholm, newly elected president of the Manitoba Association of Architects, said. “It was great to see that level of representation from Manitoba architects especially with us hosting the event this year.”
The Prairie Design Awards are a tri-provincial collaboration between architectural associations in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba that have been awarded every two years since 2000.
“There was a wide range of projects recognized with a definite focus on the public realm, places for people,” said Trenholm of LM Architectural Group.
In total, there were 166 submissions received and 17 architecture, interior design and landscape architecture projects in Alberta and Manitoba recognized at this year’s awards.
