Our team took a trip to Ottawa this week to celebrate the achievements of visionary projects completed recently by Canadian architects. Among the 12 recipients is the beloved community housing development, 60 Richmond Street East, designed by Teeple Architects for the Toronto Community Housing Co-operative. A sense of mutual admiration and enthusiasm marked the ceremony as architects with diverse design philosophies came together in one place to celebrate their visions being realized through practice. A public lecture Monday evening preceded the official ceremony at Rideau Hall on Tuesday—an event Stephen Teeple was honoured to speak at on behalf of the social impact that projects such as the 60 Richmond Housing Co-operative cultivate.
We would especially like to thank the Royal Architecture Institute of Canada and the Canada Council for the Arts for making this celebration possible.
