City of Kelowna Infill Challenge
December 1, 2015
The City of Kelowna launched an Infill Challenge to attract new models of infill housing in select areas of Kelowna’s Urban Core Area. The AIBC is supportive of what Kelowna is seeking to achieve with the Infill Challenge and recently worked with them to remove restrictions from architects participating or acting as team leaders. The updated Infill Challenge now falls entirely within the ‘Exceptions’ to the Architects Act and as such is not required to be an AIBC-sanctioned competition per AIBC Bylaws.
Architects are highly encouraged to participate. The institute hopes that the participation of architects will enhance the submissions and lead to higher quality of housing stock diversity and stronger neighbourhoods.
