bridgepoint-apr-2013-01

Heritage Toronto held its annual awards ceremony on Monday, October 17th, 2016. The event was held at the Isabel Bader Theatre, Victoria College, University of Toronto and was hosted by the former host of CBC Radio’s Fresh Air, Mary Ito. This year’s Kilbourn Lecturer was Dr. Steven High, Professor of History at Concordia University. The awards ceremony was preceded by the Mayor’s Reception, during which Councilor Mike Layton spoke about the importance of heritage conservation in architecture.

The jury considers such things as the quality of craftsmanship, appropriateness of materials, and the use of sound conservation principles, as well as how well the project meets current needs while maintaining the integrity of the original design vision.
