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, as well as the buildings that interact with these spaces.

Design awards are given out to projects that demonstrate visionary thinking and support design excellence in Vancouver. The Urban Design Awards will be presented every other year at a ceremony to celebrate entries and winners.
