2017 RAIC Metro Vancouver Chapter Advocacy Awards Dinner & Keynote

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  10 September 2017


Our cities and communities are better because of five remarkable British Columbians and organizations.  On Thursday, October 12th, 2017, these five will be recognized and celebrated as they receive the 2017 Architecture Advocacy Awards from the Metro Vancouver Chapter of RAIC.

The recipients of the 7th Bi-annual RAIC Metro Vancouver Chapter Awards are:

Mayor Linda Hepner & City Council City of Surrey

Vancouver Urbanarium Society

Michael Audain Chairman, Polygon Homes

Ray Spaxman Former Director of Planning, City of Vancouver

Nancy & Niels Bendtsen Inform Interiors

These bi-annual awards celebrate outstanding citizens who, through their vision and extraordinary efforts in the built environment, have made a significant contribution to our society.  As a result of their leadership and dedication, our lives are richer, our communities more sustainable and our cities more vibrant. With these awards, we celebrate those whose work and dedication to improving the built environment, have made a difference and who might not be recognized through traditional architectural award programs.

The RAIC (Royal Architectural Institute of Canada) is the country’s largest and oldest organization representing the architectural profession.  The award evening will include a keynote presentation by the distinguished Vancouver architect Darryl Condon, FRAIC, Architect AIBC.
