AIA Honours for MCM, DA

The American Institute of Architects has announced the recipients of its 2013 AIA Institute Honor Awards, which includes a British Columbia project that garnered accolades in two categories. The Vancouver Convention Centre West, a project of Vancouver’s Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership and DA Architects & Planners, in collaboration with Seattle-based LCM, was selected in the category of Architecture. It was cited for its blend of architecture, interior architecture and urban design to create a spectacular, integrated urban ecosystem. The trio of firms was also singled out in the category of Regional & Urban Design for the Coal Harbour Convention District, its complex and successful approach to connecting the expanded convention centre to the public realm. This awards program, the AIA’s highest form or recognition, honours excellence in architecture, interiors and urban design. This year, 28 award-winners were chosen from close to 700 submission from around the world. For a detailed list of this year’s selections, go to
