Announcing the Winners of the 2019 AZ Awards

Toronto, Canada

AZURE

The results of Azure’s ninth annual AZ Awards competition are in! At a gala celebration at Toronto’s iconic Evergreen Brick Works, attended by winners and finalists who flew in from as far away as Mexico, Denmark, Belgium, Peru and the UK, the 20 winners were unveiled – and applauded by top talents from the local and international architecture and design communities. 

Toronto, Canada, 2019-06-27 - 

On Friday June 21, Azure revealed the 20 winners of the 2019 AZ Awards, which represent exceptional work being created in global architecture and design today. Projects include a transcendent low-rise residential building on the High Line, an art museum built onto the dunes of coastal China and an ingenious folding faucet. The AZ Awards finalists arrived from as far away as Peru, London and Mexico. The winners took home a one-of-a-kind AZ Awards trophy designed by Matt Carr, one of our 2019 jurors and VP design at international product design powerhouse Umbra.


This year, the AZ Awards received 1,175 submissions from 50 countries. To narrow down this unprecedented number of entries to a shortlist of 68 finalists, our jury of international experts gathered in March at Azure’s offices in Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood. The jury members were: Pritzker Prize–winning architect Thom Mayne, co-founder of both the architectural firm Morphosis and the leading architecture school SCI-Arc; Pat Hanson, founding partner of Toronto firm gh3*; Matt Carr, vice president of design at Umbra; renowned interior designer Johnson Chou; and Stefano Pujatti, director of ElasticoSPA, an architecture studio with offices in Italy and Canada. Together, with careful deliberation, they selected the 20 standout winners, who were honoured tonight in the company of our Guest of Honour – the legendary landscape architect Martha Schwartz.


The 2019 AZ Awards is presented by Ceragres, Keilhauer and Landscape Forms, and sponsored by Cosentino, Design Within Reach, Farrow & Ball, George Brown College School of Design, Lualdi and TAS.


The AZ Awards Gala is sponsored by Alpi, Formica and Scavolini.
