ERA is proud to have been involved in three out of twelve projects to receive Governor General’s Medals in Architecture in 2014. Please see details below:
Bloor Gladstone Library, lead architect RDH. Jury comment: “This renovation and expansion of a distinctive historical library stands out for being both creative and respectful. The design re-imagines the entranceway and body of the original structure, adds a minimal glass addition and creates an intimate courtyard in the process.”
Joseph L. Rotman School of Management, lead architect KPMB. Jury comment: “Large glass volumes are anchored to an existing Victorian house and seem to float behind it.… [These] light volumes against the stately mansion…make a convincing use of contrasts.”
Congratulations to Shim-Sutcliffe, RDH, KPMB, and all the winning offices. Please see the media release at Architecture Canada.
