Good urban design matters. When you visit a place that is unique, attractive and created with people in mind, the place often holds a special memory for you. This is the goal of good urban design.
Every two years, we recognize and celebrate good urban design in our city, through the Mayor’s Urban Design Awards (MUDA 2011). The Awards recognize the people who create the best of Calgary’s new urban design, landscape design and architecture. These people include consultants, developers, communities and owners who craft distinctive and cherished buildings and spaces that make our city unique and all of us proud.
The City is currently accepting submissions for MUDA 2011, with a deadline of 4 p.m., Thursday, September 15, 2011.
The Gala Awards will take place on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 at the new Telus World of Science – a tribute in itself, to the wow-factor of good design.
If you or an organization you know is interested in submitting an
project in one of the nine categories, check out the MUDA website at www.calgary.ca/muda for information on categories, eligibility and the gala event.
We hope to see you there, enjoying the event in the beautiful new building.
