Mayor’s Urban Design Awards now accepting submissions

From towering skyscrapers to impressive housing projects, the Mayor’s Urban Design Awards celebrate the most innovative buildings and public spaces in our city.

The City of Calgary is on the hunt for those who contribute to the beauty, comfort and vitality of Calgary through their designs.

“Great design is integral to building a great city,” says Mayor Naheed Nenshi. “People should be inspired and excited by the spaces and the places that they see and interact with every day.”

The biennial awards recognize urban design projects in 12 categories such as community improvement, city edge development and civic design. This year, we have introduced two new categories: the People’s Choice Award and the Green City Award.

“The Mayor’s Urban Design Awards give me a chance as mayor to really recognize the highest quality work that happens in our city,” says Mayor Nenshi.

“The design bar keeps going higher in Calgary. We’re increasingly getting a national reputation for great design, and that’s something I want to see continue.”
