Current Exhibit: 2012 Canadian Green Building Awards

AIBC Gallery
July 4 – August 31, 2012

This exhibit showcases winning projects from the 2012 Canadian Green Building Awards, offered through Sustainable Architecture & Building Magazine (SABMag) and SAB Homes Magazine. It features seven projects – five commercial/institutional buildings and two houses – from British Columbia, Quebec and Ontario. Chosen for their level of sustainable design, architectural excellence and technical innovation, they also encompass an impressive range of building types. Exhibit highlights include a tiny three-season house in Ontario and a state-of-the-art college building in B.C.’s Okanagan designed to the exacting standards of the Living Building Challenge. The Canadian Green Building Awards is an annual program that rewards sustainable design, architectural merit and innovation in order to advance knowledge and improve practice in the design of sustainable non-residential and residential buildings in Canada. This exhibit represents design and building excellence as well as the positive direction in which Canadian building design is heading.
