0

Today at Council, the winners of the 2021 Mississauga Urban Design Awards were announced. The Urban Design Awards began in 1981 and aim to inspire and celebrate design leaders who help improve the quality of life for residents by shaping Mississauga’s diverse cityscape. This year, 13 winners, including three winners of the Public Prize, illustrate the theme of Identity of urban places. These winners also showcase some of the best public and private urban spaces Mississauga has to offer.

“On behalf of the City of Mississauga and the members of Council, I would like to congratulate the recipients of the 2021 Mississauga Urban Design Awards,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “The awards are a great opportunity to recognize the designers, architects, developers and builders who have played a vital role in our efforts to build a world-class city. These private and public spaces beautify our city and provide green spaces, public works of art and essential facilities for businesses and residents.

A jury made up of members of the design community and City of Mississauga Ward 2 Councilor Karen Ras selected the winners.

“The Mississauga Urban Design Awards are the oldest awards program of its kind in Ontario,” said Andrew Whittemore, Planning and Construction Commissioner. “This year, we are honored to recognize these talented award recipients, all of whom have contributed to the uniqueness and distinctiveness of Mississauga. I would also like to thank the jury members for volunteering their time and expertise to help us recognize excellence in urban design in Mississauga.
