Carol Phillips, MTA Partner and Sustainability Leader, represented the Limberlost Place project team when accepting the Architizer A+ Award for Unbuilt Sustainable Non-Residential Project at the Architizer Awards Gala. Limberlost Place, a collaboration between Moriyama Teshima Architects and Acton Ostry Architects Inc., is currently under construction at George Brown College’s Waterfront Campus in Toronto – and is on track to be one of the most sustainably ambitious projects in the nation.
Carol enjoyed her time at the iconic Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, France, where the event was held, and was blown away by the breadth of talent and diversity of designs. In receiving the Jury Winner Prize, the crucial role architects play in shaping a sustainable and environmentally responsible future was emphasized – there is an urgency to continue exploring new frontiers in design that prioritize both quality human-centred space and ecological responsibility. The evening was not only a celebration of architectural excellence, but also a platform for architects to connect and discuss the transformational power of design.
