2021-22 Wood Design & Building Awards | Call for Submissions

More Info

The Wood Design & Building Awards program invites North American and International entries for 2021-22 – honouring excellence in wood architecture. The program is an opportunity to discover and celebrate the world’s best wood architecture, in diverse locations and with a wide variety of typologies.

Entries should consist of building projects that show a wide range of wood product applications and demonstrate an understanding of the special qualities of wood, such as strength, durability, beauty and cost-effectiveness.

All projects completed in the period between January 1st, 2018 and December 30th, 2021 are eligible for entry [except previous winning projects of the Wood Design & Building Awards].

A jury of prominent architects from Canada and the U.S. will review all entries based on various considerations such as creativity, appropriate use of wood materials in satisfying clients’ building and site requirements and innovative design.

Honor, Merit and Citation awards will be given at the discretion of the jury. Winning projects will be showcased in the 2021-22 Celebrating Excellence in Wood Architecture book, an award video available on our websites and presented at education events throughout the year. They’ll also be featured in the spring/summer edition of the Wood Design & Building magazine and via press releases and social media. Award certificates and one copy of the book will be distributed in the fall of 2022 to the winners.
