SALA Margolese Prize: Anne Cormier
March 26, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Celebrated architect and academic Anne Cormier comes to Vancouver to receive the 2017 Margolese National Design for Living Prize, and speak about the impact of the social end of design.
Anne’s career spans the fields of practice, education, research, and leadership. She is the co-founder of the award-winning Montreal-based firm Atelier Big City. She is also an Associate Professor at the School of Architecture at the Université de Montréal, where she served as Director between 2007 and 2015. Anne’s research has led to roles with the World Design Summit, and the Laboratoire d’étude de l’architecture potentielle (LEAP).
The Margolese National Design for Living Prize celebrates and inspires exceptional impact on living environments benefitting all Canadians.
Created by a generous estate gift made to the University of British Columbia by Leonard Herbert Margolese, it awards annually an unrestricted $50,000 prize to a Canadian who has shown extraordinary talent and dedication to make Canada a better place to live.
The prize acknowledges and supports recipients’ contributions to the development or improvement of living environments for Canadians of all economic classes. Recipients may be architects, landscape architects, urban planners, engineers, public artists, policy makers, entrepreneurs, community activists or those in other fields. They may use their award to advance their expertise or, if they wish, pursue entirely new endeavours.
