After a Day Rich in Content, the 7 Facteur D Award Winners are Announced

Montreal, Canada

Mission Design


Montreal, Canada, 2012-10-16 - Today the Palais des congrès de Montréal (Montréal Convention Center) hosted the first edition of Facteur D. More than 500 people participated in the inauguration of this annual event whose objective is to help companies and organizations to better understand the economic and social benefits of architecture, design and urban planning: the D Factor (the significant effect design has on projects).

7 Facteur D Awards, Showing the Added Value of Design, Architecture and Planning
In a conclusion, 7 Facteur D Awards were handed out in front of a crowd of 350 spectators at the Facteur D Soirée. The award recognizes the best of the year’s projects, among the 47 finalists presented before an impartial international jury during the day’s event. Deliberations were based not only on design quality, but measuring the economic and social impacts of the projects. Reflecting this, both the designers/ architects/ planners and their clients of the winning projects received a trophy, a production in aluminum by Alto Design.

"Mission Design has no interest in handing out yet another design prize for the trendiest projects. What we want is to emphasize is the successful collaboration between business and design; beyond the quality of the design, we want to reward results and the measurable impacts of a project" explains Alain Dufour, Executive Director of Mission Design.

The Facteur D Soirée was also an occasion to celebrate excellence in design with the following awards: Alcoa Canada Groupe produits Primaires Award “The Table is Set for Aluminum”, Fondation CLU Awards and Jean-Paul L’Allier Award.

A tribute was also paid to the Honourable Charles Lapointe, CEO of Tourisme Montreal for the role he has played championing the design industry in Quebec.

Conferences by Prominent Architects and Designers
Alongside the 47 parallel project presentations, three lectures by leading international experts in architecture, design and urbanism were given during Facteur D:
