Urban Design Awards

We recognize and celebrate Vancouver's great architecture and urban design

Vancouver urban design strives to enrich the overall experience of the city by carefully considering the design of public spaces and the buildings that interact with these spaces.

Since 2014, the Urban Design Awards have recognized projects that demonstrated visionary thinking and supported design excellence. These projects were carefully selected by an independent panel and presented with an award for the category in which their project was judged.

Going forward, we're looking to transform the existing recognition program by updating the way projects are acknowledged and publicized, the objective being to reach a broader audience in a more accessible format.

Check back soon for more information on the new recognition program.
