MArch student Jason McMillan has won the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) Scholarship for Sustainable Design and Research. The annual scholarship was awarded for McMillan's proposal "Unsettling Ground: Arctic Urbanism on Fluid Geology."
The jury believed that "the proposal demonstrated a wholistic approach and was head and shoulder above the rest of the submissions". They felt that McMillan's project "has tangential and addressed hot topics such as indigenous architecture."
This scholarship was established through an endowment from the CaGBC in June 2006. The main purpose of the fund is to nurture the next generation of green designers by promoting and encouraging sustainable research and design in Canadian Schools of Architecture. The Canada Green Building Council’s mission is to promote buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable, and healthy places to live, work and play by engaging a national coalition of industry leaders to accelerate the mainstream adoption of green building principles, policies, practices, standards and tools.
