Mayor's Urban Design Awards 2017 MUDA Winners

The 2017 Mayor’s Urban Design Award winners were announced Nov. 15 at the National Music Centre. Every two years, the City of Calgary acknowledges the important contributions of designers, architects and artists that help improve the quality of life in Calgary through art and design.

“Recognizing the people behind our vibrant buildings and spaces in our city is important,” said David Down, The City’s Chief Urban Designer. “Well-designed space make people feel welcome, improves safety and accessibility and creates a memorable sense of place.”

Eighty-nine submissions were judged in twelve categories that showcase some of the most innovative buildings and public spaces in Calgary. New this year was the Housing Innovation Award, which highlights creative designs that contribute to: affordable housing; improved livability for seniors; and simple, viable housing options for citizens facing mobility challenges.
