The Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) has announced the launch of a landscape design competition for its headquarters.
The competition is a key project to put the themes and priorities of the OAA?s five-year Strategic Plan into action such as climate action and equity, diversity, inclusion, and reconciliation.

Along with acknowledging the Don River ravine context, participants will be asked to create a welcoming arrival experience, enhance the building, and recognize the role of sustainability and water use in the health of the environment.

The competition will be overseen by Ontario architect Joe Lobko, and ...
