Azure magazine announces the winners of its 3rd annual az awards

 
July 29th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Top players of the international architectural and design community, from as far as Mexico and Belgium, gathered at Evergreen Brick Works last night as AZURE revealed the winners of its third annual AZ Awards. These awards are one of a kind: the only international, multi-disciplinary design competition in Canada. Representing a global snapshot of the world of architecture and design, submissions were open to designers, architects, firms and manufacturers of all disciplines, as well as students in these fields.

The high-calibre international jury included architect Shirley Blumberg of KPMB (Toronto), designer Todd Bracher of Todd Bracher Studio (New York), interior designer George Yabu of Yabu Pushelberg (Toronto and New York), landscape architect Ken Smith of Workshop (New York and Irvine, California), and visionary manufacturer and designer Giulio Cappellini of Cappellini (Milan). In March, the expert panel conferred at Torontoʼs Hôtel Le Germain, Maple Leaf Square, narrowing the field from an impressive 677 entries arriving from 38 countries to a shortlist of 43 finalists. From there, they selected the 14 outstanding winners.

“The overall calibre of entries to the AZ Awards was especially high this year,” says Catherine Osborne, editor of AZURE, “which made it very challenging for the jury. Everyone agreed there was an incredible amount of intelligence, sophistication and elegance visible in all of the submissions.”

During the month of April, the public was also given the chance to vote online for their favourites as the Peopleʼs Choice.
