2006 Governor General’s Medals
in Architecture


 

“Today, Canadian architects stand squarely with the
best of their international counterparts as artists
and craftspeople who strive not only for a physical
expression of function and form, but also for
an experience rooted in aestheticism and grace.”

Her Excellency the Right Honourable
Michaëlle Jean,
Governor General of Canada


The Governor General’s Medals in Architecture recognize outstanding achievement in recently built projects by Canadian architects. This program, created by the RAIC, contributes to the development of the discipline and practice of architecture, and increases public awareness of architecture as a vital cultural force in Canadian society. These awards are administered jointly with the Canada Council for the Arts, which is responsible for the adjudication process and contributes to the publication highlighting the medal winners.

The Governor General’s Medals in Architecture will be presented September 20, 2006 at 6 p.m. in Montreal at l’Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec by Her Honour the Honourable Lise Thibault, Lieutenant Governor of Québec.

The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada would also like to acknowledge the continued support of McGraw-Hill Construction, who have been a sponsor of the Governor General's Medals in Architecture for several years.
