Recognizing Innovative Wood Design in North America 2011 Wood Design Award Winners Announced Ottawa, ON, January 13th, 2012 – The Wood Design & Building magazine is pleased to announce the award recipients for the prestigious 2011 North American Awards Program. Sixteen projects were hand selected from over one-hundred entries by an esteemed jury panel: Andrew Frontini from Perkins+Will, James Cutler from Cutler Anderson and Robert Hull from Miller Hull.
The caliber of entries was extremely high this year, making the selection process challenging for the jury who based their selection on considerations such as creativity, appropriate use of wood materials, ability to satisfy the client's building and site requirements and the overall aesthetic appeal for the use and application of wood. "Innovation is the forefront to opportunity," explains Etienne Lalonde, Vice-President of Market Development for the Canadian Wood Council. "The Wood Design Awards is an opportunity to recognize wood projects that inspire the way we think about wood and its applications."
The Wood Design & Building magazine, in partnership with the Canadian Wood Council, would like to thank everyone who participated in the 2011 North American Awards Program, and congratulate all of the winning projects.
