When the winners of the 19th edition of Canadian Interiors’ Best of Canada Awards were unveiled last week, Menkes Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes were delighted to learn that they were awarded not one but two prizes in the “Institutional” category, one for the Maison des étudiants de l’ÉTS (ÉTS Student Centre) and the other for the Vitrine étudiante de Polytechnique (Polytechnique Montréal Student Centre). These annual prizes, which recognize and reward the best Canadian design projects, will honor 31 winners at a gala evening in Toronto on November 30th as part of the IIDEX National Design + Architecture Exposition and Conference.
This recognition adds itself to the prestigious American Architecture Prize awarded earlier this week to the Maison des étudiants de l’ÉTS in the “Architectural Design / Educational Building” category. An international competition which crowns the best architecture, interior design and landscape design projects, the AAP rewards some 100 projects among its 40 proposed categories. The winning projects will be honored in New York City next October 25th during a ceremony to be held at the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum.
